截止2020年4月3日,新型冠狀病毒COVID-19已在全球導致45,000多人死亡,有近90萬宗確診病病例。它在全球範圍內蔓延,並將正面衝激受衝突、
自然災害和氣候變化而面臨人道主義危機的國家及地區。
我們的應對計劃將由聯合國機構共同實施,並由國際上非政府組織與財團參與並發揮直接作用。當中包括:
  • 提供必要的實驗室設備以測試病毒,並提供所需醫療用品給醫護人員;
  • 在難民營及聚居點等安裝洗手站;
  • 開展有關如何保護自己和他人免受病毒侵害的公共教育項目;和
  • 在非洲、亞洲和拉丁美洲建立空中橋樑和樞紐,將人道主義工作人員和物資運送到最需要的地方。

A 3-year-old girl receives a vaccine shot at a community health centre in Beijing, China, on 26 March 2020. Provinces other than Hubei, the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak, gradually resumed full vaccination services that had been halted due to the outbreak.

聯合國秘書長安東尼奧·古特雷斯說:
新型冠狀病毒威脅著整個人類,因此整個人類必須進行反擊。各個國家的回應還不足夠…… 我們必須保護數百萬名生活在脆弱環境的人。這是人類基本團結的問題。這對於共同抵抗病毒也至關重要。現在是加強幫助弱勢群體的關鍵時刻。

On 9 March 2020, children wash their hands with soap at a UNICEF-supported learning centre in the Kutupalong camp, a Rohingya refugee camp, in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.As March 2020, over 216,000 children in the Rohingya camps in Cox’s Bazar have learned to practice hand washing every day as part of life-skills education. Coronavirus Covid-19 is impacting more and more countries around the world as the pandemic spreads leading to a global health crisis. Hygiene practices are at the forefront of this battleground, providing the best defence against disease transmission. However, in the Rohingya refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar, this poses a formidable challenge. The risk for any infectious disease transmission is continuously high in the densely populated camps, which are home to 850,000 Rohingya refugees, over half of whom are children.

主管人道主義事務副秘書長馬克·洛考克說:
新型冠狀病毒已經改變了世界上一些最富裕國家的生活。現在它到達了戰爭地區,人們無法輕易獲得乾淨的水和肥皂,而且如果他們患了重病,也沒有希望在醫院就診…… 如果我們將冠狀病毒留在脆弱地方自由傳播,我們將使數以百萬計的人處於高風險之中,整個地區都將陷入混亂,而病毒將會繼續在全球範圍內傳播。我們的首要任務是幫助這些國家做好準備,並繼續幫助數以百萬計依靠人道主義援助生存的人。

Twins Ana (7) and Kaja (7) with books spread out over the table follow the TV-classroom programme broadcast on national television.They follow the programme with the same level of seriousness they usually do when at school. Their biggest concern is whether the TV-classroom teacher will assign them a dictation test – a test they find most challenging as second graders. Like all children in North Macedonia they have been at home since 10 March 2020 when the government temporary closed schools due to the spread of COVID-19. width=

聯合國兒童基金會執行主任亨利埃塔·福爾說:
兒童是新型冠狀病毒大流行最看不見的受害者。封鎖學校與停課正影響他們的教育、心理健康以及獲得基本保健服務的機會。對於男孩和女孩來說,在家或社區受到剝削和虐待的風險比以往任何時候都高。對於生活在衝突中的兒童,後果更難估計。我們決不能讓他們失望。」
UNICEF HK在三月中正式展開了「童你抗疫」衞生行動,過百人的義工團隊已陸續進行家訪,為本地基層家庭送上物資袋及於劏房廁所噴灑消毒自潔塗層,親身教導兒童正確的個人及家居衞生知識,增強本地基層家庭的抗疫能力。
