- WHO has published the ‘R&D Blueprint: COVID-19 Experimental Treatments’,
which lists drug and non-drug experimental treatments for COVID-19.
- 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 Europe ease 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 centres in a number of countries. For more, see ‘Subject in Focus’ on the official page.
