In this photo taken Thursday, March 26, 2020, residents live in crowded conditions in the Sayidka camp for internally displaced people in Mogadishu, Somalia. The country has only a handful of confirmed cases of the new coronavirus so far but residents of the camp, who have already fled drought and violence from the Islamist al-Shabab militant group, say they are fearful of the virus and feel vulnerable.

It seemed fantastical: an illness sweeping the world far beyond Somalia's borders, killing thousands of people and sending some of the richest countries into panic.
