From the Highlights: "[1] WHO [World Health Organization] has published a rapid advice guidance on the Use of chest imaging in COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. The guide examines available evidence and makes recommendations for the use of radiography, computed tomography and ultrasound for acute care of adult patients with suspected, probable or confirmed COVID-19 at different levels of disease severity. [2] The private sector plays a critical role in the preparedness and response activities for COVID-19 locally, nationally and globally. WHO has published 'Asks' to the private sector in the response to COVID-19, such as protecting stakeholders and businesses, making essential supplies available, and providing financial support. [3] The Government of Canada has agreed to contribute over US $5 million to the WHO Regional Office for the Americas to support COVID-19 response activities, including increasing access to personal protective equipment and other critical supplies. The contribution will focus on supporting marginalized and vulnerable communities in 23 countries in the Americas. [4] Doctors and nurses on the frontlines of the COVID-19 response in the Republic of the Congo have shared stories about their daily lives, personal sacrifices and inspirations."
