Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Situation Report - 203   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "[1] Over the past weeks, WHO [World Health Organization] has been adding functionality to its COVID-19 [coronvirus disease 2019] global dashboard, to display all of the latest data that have been published in the daily situation report; these data are now fully available on the dashboard. Important narrative updates are being merged into the WHO COVID-19 'Rolling updates'pages. Starting next Monday, 17 August, the daily situation report will be replaced by a 'COVID-19 Weekly Epidemiological Update' which will focus on analysis and interpretation of the evolving epidemiologic situation. Operational updates will continue to be shared through the 'Weekly Operational Update on COVID-19'. [2] Yesterday, 9 August, the world celebrated International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples, an annual event to raise awareness of the needs and rights of the world's indigenous populations. COVID-19 and indigenous peoples in the the Americas were featured in Situation Report 182. A recent UN News article discusses how the COVID-19 pandemic has made indigenous Hawaiians reflect on their heritage. [3] A flight carrying protective masks, ventilators and other essential medical supplies for the COVID-19 response, landed in Papua New Guinea last Thursday, marking the start of a humanitarian air service for the Pacific region."
