COVID-19 special coverage in Al-Fanar Media

London, March 2020 — As the novel coronavirus sweeps through the Arab region, Al-Fanar Media is monitoring how it is affecting those facets of the Arab world that we focus on: higher education, research, and arts and culture.

The Covid-19 pandemic has blocked students' education, shuttered the art world, and revealed how badly the Arab region needs its own public health and research infrastructure.

Al-Fanar Media is a project of the Alexandria Trust.
