Subject in Focus: WHO Strengthens supply chains and releases guidance on setting up treatment centers

WHO Operations Support and Logistics (OSL) continues to support the COVID-19 emergency operations despite continued disruption to critical supply markets where demand outpaces global supply.

Since the beginning of the outbreak, OSL has shipped more than 800,000 surgical masks, 54,000 N95 masks, 873,000 globes, 15,000 goggles and 24,000 face shields to 75 countries. OSL has also shipped COVID-19 testing kits to 126 countries.

A Supply Chain Inter-Agency Coordination Cell (SCICC) has been established to provide an overview of supply chain requirements and ensure that COVID-19 needs are prioritized within the wider humanitarian response. The SCICC has established a Supply and Market Working Group to streamline procurement of critical supplies and equipment to address global shortages.

A common platform for private-sector donations of critical items in support of the COVID-19 response will be announced shortly. The list of critical items is available online.

OSL continues to monitor critical markets and has increased engagement and coordination with private companies, in partnership with the Pandemic Supply Chain Network.

OSL has released the first edition of a practical manual to set up and manage a Severe Acute Respiratory Infection (SARI) treatment center and a SARI screening facility in health-care facilities. The manual is available online, and accompanying training modules are available to the public through Open WHO.

  • Module 1: Overview of basic operational and IPC principles in COVID-19 context
  • Module 2: Designing a SARI screening area and treatment center
  • Module 3: Repurposing an existing building into a SARI treatment center

An additional module for WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene), waste management, energy requirements and installations for SARI facilities is currently under development.

OSL is also working to build tactical infection prevention and control (IPC) surge support to hospitals with an aim to help improve infectious disease management protocols, limit nosocomial transmission and support rational consumption of personal protective equipment.

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).
