ABSTRACT

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Situation Report - 91   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Highlights: "[1] No new country/territory/area reported cases of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] in the past 24 hours. [2] The urgent need for a COVID-19 vaccine underscores the pivotal role immunizations play in protecting lives and economies. Dr Hans Henri P. Kluge, WHO [World Health Organization] Regional Director for Europe, marking the European Immunization Week 2020, stressed 'we must not, especially now, let down our guard on immunizations'. [...3] WHO has published a brief on the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in patients with COVID-19. Concerns have been raised that NSAIDs may be associated with an increased risk of adverse effects. However, as explained in the brief, at present there is no evidence of severe adverse effects."
