Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Situation Report - 123   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Highlights: "[1] WHO [World Health Organization] and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) joined forces to improve health services for refugees, displaced and stateless people. WHO and UNHCR signed a new agreement to strengthen and advance public health services for the millions of displaced people around the world. A key aim this year will be to support ongoing efforts to protect some 70 million displaced people due to COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. [2] WHO has supported the Smithsonian Science Education Center and InterAcademy Partnership to launch a new COVID-19 rapid-response guide for young people aged 8-17 years, titled 'COVID-19! How can I protect myself and others?'. The guide, which is based on the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, aims to help young people understand the science and social science of COVID-19 as well as help them take action to keep themselves, their families and communities safe. [3] WHO has launched a new search feature for questions on COVID-19. WHO's COVID-19 webpage now features an enhanced natural language processing search bar, which understands questions posed in everyday language and more accurately delivers answers to those queries."
