From the Highlights: "[1] No new country/territory/area reported cases of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] in the past 24 hours. [2] WHO [World Health Organization] Director-General, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, in his media briefing yesterday, thanked health ministers from the G20 [Group of Twenty] countries for their support, as well as the support received from the G77 [Group of 77] (that comprises 135 countries) and The Non-Aligned Movement (that comprises over 130 countries). He reiterated that WHO is committed to supporting all countries to save lives. [3] WHO and Global Citizen's 'One World, Together at Home' concert in collaboration with Lady Gaga has been a great success and show of global friendship and solidarity. It has also raised US$55 million for WHO's Solidarity Response Fund, which will be used to support countries to prevent, detect, and respond to the pandemic. [4] As of 21 April, over 100 countries have joined the Solidarity Trial to evaluate therapeutics for COVID-19. The trial will compare four treatment options against local standard of care, to assess their relative effectiveness against COVID-19."
