As a consequence of the coronavirus outbreak in the Americas, the population of concern to UNHCR faced loss of livelihoods, evictions and health risks, due to limited access to national systems and lack of adequate quarantine facilities. Many of them saw no option but to return to their countries in adverse conditions.
