Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Situation Report - 169   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Highlights: "[1] WHO [World Health Organization] encourages Member States to invest in and build longer-term health emergency preparedness during the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic. To support this goal, WHO has published guidance that maps COVID-19 preparedness and response actions; locates relevant supporting WHO resources; and advocates for the conscious and effective allocation of COVID-19 funds to also meet countries' longer-term needs. [2] A WHO survey has found that access to HIV medicines has been severely impacted by COVID-19. Seventy-three countries have warned that they are at risk of stock-outs of antiretroviral (ARV) medicines as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the survey conducted ahead of the International AIDS Society's biannual conference. [3] The WHO Regional Office for America urges countries to continue the fight against malaria during the COVID19 pandemic, especially among vulnerable communities. In the Americas, 138 million people live in areas at risk of malaria, and some 765 000 cases and around 340 deaths were reported in 2018."
