After losing his mother and brother in the battle to liberate Mosul, Iraq from Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists, Sami Hussein fled with his family to a camp for displaced persons near Erbil. Enduring cold winters and rampant disease in a camp for Internally Displaced People, Hussein found low-paying work in an outlying village. It was while working in the village that he contracted the coronavirus. He isolated himself from his family by sleeping inside a bag on the desert floor next to his family’s tent.
