From the Highlights: "[1] No new country/territory/area reported cases of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] in the past 24 hours. [2] The daily situation report will now report the COVID-19 transmission scenario for each country using the definitions published in the updated global surveillance guidance published on 20 March (here). Transmission scenarios are self-reported by Member States to WHO. The determination of transmission scenario is still pending for some Member States. The transmission scenarios are: no confirmed cases, sporadic cases, clusters of cases, and community transmission. [...3] As millions of Christians, Jews and Muslims celebrate Easter, Passover and Ramadan, WHO [World Health Organization] has released guidance for religious leaders and faith-based communities in the context of COVID-19. [...4] Today marks 100 days since WHO was notified of the first cases of 'pneumonia with unknown cause' in China. In yesterday's media briefing, Director-General Dr Tedros recalled the work that WHO and its partners have been doing over this period and the continuing efforts to stop the pandemic in five key areas."
