Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Situation Report - 115   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Highlights: "[1] Lesotho reported its first case of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. [2] WHO [World Health Organization] has published an interim guidance document on Laboratory biosafety for testing of clinical specimens of patients that meet the case definition of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). [3] WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros in his media briefing yesterday, highlighted the urgent need for all countries to invest in strong health systems and primary healthcare, as the best defence against outbreaks like COVID-19. The World Health Statistics published by WHO, show that people around the world are living longer and healthier lives overall with the biggest gains in low-income countries. However, the report also shows that the rate of progress is too slow to meet the Sustainable Development Goals and will be further thrown off track by COVID-19. [4] WHO announced the launch of the WHO Academy and the WHO info mobile applications."
