Summary

As of February 3, 2020, the death toll in China due to the coronavirus has risen to 361 with 17,205 confirmed infections. This fast-spreading new virus has caused great alarm and Wuhan, the center of the outbreak, has been locked down. Hospitals in China are flooded with patients and are running low on essential supplies such as masks and gloves. Civic Force and our partners have sent disaster response staff with essential supplies to distribute and combat the outbreak.

Challenge

Declared a global health emergency by the World Health Organization (WHO), hospitals in and around Wuhan are overwhelmed and are at maximum capacity. Residents are crammed together in waiting rooms to see doctors; meanwhile, the close proximity and lack of medical supplies allow the virus to spread more easily. People need essential supplies such as masks and gloves to protect themselves and others from the coronavirus.

Solution

"ARROWS" (Airborne Rescue & Relief Operations With Search), a joint emergency response team formed by Civic Force and partners, dispatched staff to Shanghai, China to conduct needs assessments and deliver medical supplies. This project will help deliver medical supplies to hospitals in China that have run out of these essential items. These medical supplies will help prevent the further spread of the virus.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide for the immediate needs of the hospitals that are lacking in essential medical supplies. The long-term impact is the containment of the virus so that less people will be infected.
