In 2020, world headlines have been dominated by the spread of novel coronavirus (nCoV), which causes flu-like and respiratory symptoms and can be transmitted from person to person. Tens of thousands of cases have been recorded in China, leading to hundreds of deaths. The coronavirus has also spread to other countries.

In 2020, world headlines have been dominated by news of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), which causes flu-like and respiratory symptoms and can be transmitted from person to person. Tens of thousands of cases have been recorded in China, leading to thousands of deaths. The coronavirus has also spread to other countries.

On 30 January 2020, the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. Health authorities in China and across the world are on high alert and are working together to control its spread.

World Vision is appealing for USD500,000 to help contain the escalation of coronavirus cases in China. Funds will go towards the distribution of Personal Protective Equipment (including masks, hand sanitizers and other personal hygiene items) to children, families and health workers in China’s Hubei and Hunan Provinces, and other areas where World Vision conducts its programmes. World Vision hopes to reach over 71,000 people through these efforts.

Help us to protect children and families from novel coronavirus (COVID-19) before more lives are lost.
