ABSTRACT

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Situation Report - 96   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Highlights: "[1] WHO [World Health Organization], together with heads of state, global health leaders, private sector partners and other stakeholders launched the Access To COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Tools (ACT) Accelerator, a global collaboration to accelerate the development, production and equitable access to new COVID-19 diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines. [...2] Although some governments have suggested that the detection of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2], the virus that causes COVID-19, could serve as the basis for an 'immunity passport' or 'risk-free certificate', there is currently no evidence that people who have recovered from COVID-19 and have antibodies are protected from a second infection. [...3] WHO has seen a dramatic increase in the number of cyber-attacks directed at its staff, and email scams targeting the public. WHO asks the public to remain vigilant against fraudulent emails and recommends using reliable sources to obtain factual information about COVID-19 and other health issues."
