  • WHO has called on countries to ensure that usual immunization is maintained wherever possible and surveillance for vaccine-preventable diseases is not disrupted during the ongoing pandemic.
  • WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros, in his regular media briefing yesterday, highlighted “As lockdowns in Europeease with declining numbers of new cases, we continue to urge countries to find, isolate, test and treat all cases of COVID-19 and trace every contact, to ensure these declining trends continue.”
  • WHO continues to source millions of dollars of medical equipment and supplies to help Member States access global markets, which are overwhelmed by unprecedented demand. WHO is also supporting design and installation of COVID-19 treatment centers in a number of countries. For more, see ‘Subject in Focus’ below.

Sourcing Supplies – Progress Update

WHO and partners continue to work with suppliers to secure commitments for supplies needed for the COVID-19 response in countries with limited means to access markets for personal protective equipment, diagnostic testing supplies and clinical care equipment.

Adiagnosticpurchasing consortium, established by WHO to negotiate with manufacturers to address market shortages of diagnostic tests and supplies, has secured commitment for five million tests to be procured over the next four weeks. WHO continues to look for suppliers who can provide sample collection kits to increase overall procurement stocks.

Collective UN efforts to source extremely limited supplies of clinical equipment are ongoing. WHO and consortium partners have conducted market mapping activities to identify supply sources for oxygen concentrators, ventilators, and other essential equipment for COVID-19 treatment centers. To date, approximately US$400 million in clinical care equipment has been identified from oxygen production, biomedical equipment, and accessories manufacturers.

Discussions with private sector partners indicate manufacturers are generally in favor of the COVID-19 Supply Chain approach to sourcing and allocating supplies. This should bring clarity and transparency to requests for critical supplies that manufacturers are receiving from around the world.

Sourcing activities for personal protective equipment are ongoing. The first batch of purchases is expected to be placed for 75 million masks, 50 million respirators, 28 million gloves and 10 million face shields.

Discussions are ongoing with the Jack Ma Foundation for an additional provision of 100 million surgical masks and one million respirators.

Technical support for COVID-19 treatment centers

WHO is supporting Italy’s Bologna and Puglia provinces, helping to design and install COVID-19 treatment centers in these provinces’ hospitals. In Nigeria, WHOhasprovidedtechnicalguidanceforaproposedself-quarantine facility in an internally displaced persons (IDP) camp run by the International Organization for Migration (IOM). WHO has also provided support for the installation of COVID-19 treatment facilities in Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal, São Tomé and Príncipe and Australia.

Recommendations and Advice for the Public

If you are not in an area where COVID-19 is spreading or have not traveled from an area where COVID-19 is spreading or have not been in contact with an infected patient, your risk of infection is low. It is understandable that you may feel anxious about the outbreak. Get the facts from reliable sources to help you accurately determine your risks so that you can take reasonable precautions (see Frequently Asked Questions). Seek guidance from WHO, your healthcare provider, your national public health authority or your employer for accurate information on COVID-19 and whether COVID-19 is circulating where you live. It is important to be informed of the situation and take appropriate measures to protect yourself and your family (see Protection measures for everyone).

If you are in an area where there are cases of COVID-19 you need to take the risk of infection seriously. Follow the advice of WHO and guidance issued by national and local health authorities. For most people, COVID-19 infection will cause mild illness however, it can make some people very ill and, in some people, it can be fatal. Older people, and those with pre-existing medical conditions (such as cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease or diabetes) are at risk for severe disease (See Protection measures for persons who are in or have recently visited (past 14 days) areas where COVID-19 is spreading).
