In spite of the never-ending hostilities, aid continues to flow into Gaza, from Israel. Just last week, 206 tons of medical supplies and equipment entered Gaza.
Supplies needed to facilitate Gaza's fight against the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, including testing kits, personal protective gear, and sanitizer were also sent.
Gaza has been sanitizing public areas and shopping centers.
Additionally, Gaza is building a 1000 bed field hospital for quarantined coronavirus patients.

Recognizing that viruses cross borders, Israel and the Palestinian Authority have set up a joint operations room to combat the pandemic.
Rather than applaud the regional cooperation, the usual suspects are taking this as an opportunity to bash Israel. Posting on Twitter, the self-described "journalist, writer, filmmaker" Ben Norton refuses to be inconvenienced by simple reality and instead makes the spurious claim,
"Coronavirus has now reached Gaza, which is under a totally illegal, brutal, medieval-style siege by Israel. Gaza barely has health infrastructure; it has been bombed to pieces by Israel. Every Palestinian death caused by Covid-19 is blood on Israel's hands"
Over 77,000 tons of supplies, in 2547 trucks entered Gaza last week alone. Positively "medieval", Ben.
