Hard Numbers: Somali healthcare crisis, UK COVID test failure, Colombian prison riot, views on women's rights

50: Only 50 percent of urban residents in Somalia have access to health care, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross, with the number dropping to 15 percent for the country's rural inhabitants. The dire warning comes as COVID-19 cases steadily increase in Somalia, a country with few hospital beds and zero ventilators.


314: Colombian prison inmates at a facility in Villavicencio staged riots and some attempted a jailbreak after at least 314 inmates and guards tested positive for COVID-19, the highest number at any jail in the country. They were protesting lack of adequate protection provided by the state, but the unrest was swiftly quashed by prison guards.

74: Across 34 countries surveyed by Pew, a median of 74 percent of respondents agree that it is "very important" for women to have the same rights as men. Western Europe, the US, and Latin America led the pack. The poll also showed that women were more inclined than men to say gender equality is important.

100,000: After setting April 30 as a goal for conducting 100,000 coronavirus tests a day, the British government has acknowledged that it's unlikely to meet the self-imposed target. Boris Johnson's government has been widely criticized for its mismanagement of the outbreak, which has now killed over 26,000 people in the UK, the second highest toll in Europe behind Italy.
