ABSTRACT

Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Situation Report - 141   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Highlights: "[1] More than 7 million cases of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] and over 400 000 deaths have now been reported to WHO [World Health Organization]. Although the situation in Europe is improving, globally it is worsening. On Sunday, more than 136 000 cases were reported, the most in a single day so far. In countries seeing positive signs, the WHO Director-General warned in his media briefing yesterday 'the biggest threat now is complacency'. [2] The WHO Regional Office for the Americas has published a guide with recommendations on measures to reduce COVID-19 transmission among indigenous populations, Afro-descendants, and other ethnic groups. The recommendations focus on promoting hygiene, social distancing, and improving access to basic health services in these communities. [3] WHO fully supports equality and the global movement against racism. We encourage all those protesting around the world to do so safely: as much as possible, keep at least 1 metre from others, clean your hands, cover your cough and wear a mask if you attend a protest."
