International Medical Corps
International Medical Corps is tracking the situation closely, leveraging the expertise of staff who have worked on SARS in China and in Asia during the last SARS epidemic and has reached out to authorities in affected areas in Asia, the US and Canada to offer assistance. International Medical Corps’ global strategy and approach to the COVID-19 outbreak is focused on helping frontline health workers respond to this outbreak – including: 1) training; 2) procurement and distribution of medical supplies like personal protective equipment; 3) establishing screening units; 4) launching broad-based community education; and 5) if requested, deploying an epidemic response team.
Direct Relief is coordinating with public health authorities, nonprofit organizations and businesses in China and the U.S. to provide personal protective equipment and other items to health workers responding to coronavirus (COVID-19). In China, Direct Relief has delivered via FedEx more than 30,000 pounds of protective gear — nearly 800,000 N95 and surgical masks, more than 400,000 gloves, and numerous coveralls, face shields, and shoe covers — to frontline health workers. In the U.S., Direct Relief is delivering protective masks – along with exam gloves and isolation gowns – to health care organizations in areas with confirmed COVID-19 cases. Direct Relief is also staging personal protective equipment with regional response agencies across the world, including in the Caribbean and South America through the Pan American Health Organization.
