ABSTRACT

Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Situation Report- 119   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Highlights: "[1] The 73rd World Health Assembly which opened today, will focus on the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic. Member States will deliver statements, report their progress in fighting the coronavirus, share knowledge on the evolving situation and consider a draft resolution on COVID-19. It is available live online in Arabic, Chinese, Russian, English, French, and Spanish. [2] WHO [World Health Organization] has signed an agreement with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to work together to promote health through sport and physical activity. The agreement has a special focus on preventing non-communicable diseases (NCDs). This collaboration is timely because the current COVID-19 pandemic is particularly affecting people with NCDs. [3] Flooding in Somalia has raised concerns of an upsurge in cholera cases as the country deals with a growing number of COVID-19 cases. WHO's country office has sent urgently needed essential medical supplies, however funding for humanitarian operations in Somalia remains very low."
