Updated country preparedness and response status for COVID-19 as of 11 February 2020

Source(s):  World Health Organization (WHO)

his document categorizes countries according to a) current status of a country’s response needs according to current situation (general preparedness, high-risk of imported cases, imported cases, localized transmission, and community transmission) and b) country readiness capacity as based on the IHR (2005) State Parties Annual Reporting and further refined by the regions based on additional information from voluntary external evaluations, pandemic influenza preparedness plans, country readiness assessment for health emergencies, missions to the countries, as well as the most up-to-date country specific COVID-19 situation analyses. 

This categorization will be updated regularly based on the evolving COVID-19 situation in each country and specific country risk and capacity assessments which will be conducted to identify key response requirements as the situation evolves. The country preparedness and response status will be used to prioritize support to countries with high risk and significant gaps in preparedness capacity.
