Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Situation Report - 42   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Highlights: "[1] Six new Member States (Armenia, Czechia, Dominican Republic, Luxembourg, Iceland, and Indonesia) reported cases of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] in the past 24 hours. [2] A team of WHO [World Health Organization] experts has arrived in Tehran, Iran to support the COVID-19 response. The objectives are to identify transmission dynamics and at-risk populations, and provide technical guidance. [...3] Containment remains the top priority for all countries. Management for COVID-19 globally, however, is not a one-size-fits-all approach and must be tailored to the transmission scenario a country faces. Early robust measures are key to saving lives and halting transmission, notes the WHO Director General. [...4] WHO's Operations Supply and Logistics team are working across numerous areas to support the COVID-19 response. Activities include working to establish a Supply Chain Coordination Cell and providing a technical briefing for G20 [Group of Twenty] members on the personal protective equipment (PPE) market situation."
