The 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a new virus linked to the same family of viruses as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and some types of common cold. As of 29 Janaury 2020 nearly 6,000 people have been infected, and the numbers are rising rapidly. Most cases are in China and there have been reports of infections among children. Coronaviruses are transmitted through direct contact, respiratory droplets like coughing and sneezing, and touching surfaces contaminated with the virus. Symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. UNICEF is in close contact with the Chinese authorities, including the Ministry of Commerce and the National Health Commission, the World Health Organization (WHO), and other UN agencies to monitor developments and needs as the situation further unfolds. UNICEF is also working with WHO and partners for a coordinated multi-sectoral response in China and other affected countries.

聯合國兒童基金香港委員會(UNICEF HK)正進行緊急防疫項目──「童你抗疫」衞生行動,從家居措施着手,增強1萬戶居於劏房之基層家庭的抗疫能力,提供的服務包括在廁所空間噴灑消毒自潔塗層、送上「抗疫物資袋」及「防疫攻略」教育資源,着重加強他們的環境及廁所衞生意識,從而阻截病毒傳播,守護弱勢兒童及家庭的健康。

另外,在國際層面, UNICEF已積極展開對策,重點支援確診病例較集中的中國及東亞和太平洋地區國家,自1月以來,UNICEF已為受影響地區空運超過30噸物資,包括防護服裝、口罩、護目鏡和手套等,期望遏止新型冠狀病毒疫情於全球持續擴散。現階段,UNICEF正緊急籌集6億5千萬美元,希望各界善心人士伸出援手,捐款支持。

(若籌得之善款多於「新型冠狀病毒緊急防疫項目」所需,餘款將撥調UNICEF其他緊急救援項目,援助災難中的兒童。)
