ABSTRACT

Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Situation Report - 138   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Highlights: "[1] Community health mobilizers are on the frontlines of Angola's COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] response, increasing awareness of COVID-19 among the general population by conducting home visits and social mobilization campaigns in local markets and other busy communal areas. [2] This year on World Environment Day on 5 June, people around the world celebrated biodiversity and called for the preservation of nature, as human impact on the environment has increased the risk of emerging infectious diseases in humans: over 60% of emerging infectious diseases originate from animals, mainly from wildlife. The need to lessen our impact on the environment is being emphasised in the context of post-COVID-19 recovery, in order to reduce at source the risk of future epidemics. [3] WHO [World Health Organization] has published an updated interim guidance on Key planning recommendations for mass gatherings in the context of COVID-19, which reflects the evolution of the pandemic and the most recent WHO recommendations on COVID-19, summarized in the 'Subject in Focus' below."
