Coronavirus: Precautions and other preventative measures

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the outbreak of a novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) as a public health emergency of international concern.

Precautions and prevention is a priority in supporting preparedness and response efforts across the Secretariat. 

Multiple actions have already been taken, including strengthening preparedness of UN health facilities and initial efforts to raise awareness amongst all colleagues.

A Covid-19 page with information on precautions and other preventative measures has been raised on the United Nations portal in all official languages. This page is updated daily.
