ABSTRACT

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Situation Report - 85   [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 number of confirmed cases reported by countries reflects national laboratory testing capacity and strategy, thus the interpretation of the number of cases reported should take this into account. [3] WHO [World Health Organization] has published interim guidance on oxygen sources and distribution strategies for COVID-19 treatment. The document describes how to quantify oxygen demand, identify oxygen sources that are available, and select appropriate surge sources to best respond to COVID-19 patients' needs, especially in low-and-middle income countries. [...4] The Director-General thanked the United Kingdom for its generous contribution of £200 million to the global response to COVID-19, an act which he described as a 'demonstration of global solidarity'. [...5] A group of scientists, physicians, funders and manufacturers from around the world have pledged to collaborate, in coordination with WHO, to help speed up the availability of a vaccine against COVID-19."
