This report is produced by Office of the Resident Coordinator in collaboration with partners and covers the period as of 28 May 2021.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Acute need for oxygen refill and supply systems.
  • Antigen testing supplies have arrived in the country and will support testing capacity, but continued supply of testing kits remains a top need.
  • Unconditional cash transfers as temporary income needed to enable vulnerable families to meet basic needs.
  • Lack of strict regulation or enforcement around medical waste management may heighten infection risks.
  • People displaced by natural hazards are at heightened risk of transmission. These types of risks are expected to increase over the coming months of the monsoon season.
