Challenge

The coronavirus is confirmed to be present in the country with 1 confirmed death and several suspected of being infected. Panic is now happening in the towns and cities aggravated by the lack of timely and adequate communication. People resort to panic-buying especially face masks and food items. The situation is made more difficult with thousands of overseas workers and seafarers coming and going that may easily spread the virus. Government health care facilities is also inadequate.

Solution

There is an urgent need to educate the public and provide relief support to those who is suspected to be infected. Education about prevention and self-care is very urgent. Civil society like ourselves work in local communities and will be more effective in providing support to our constituents.

Long-Term Impact

The virus is spreading and there is a need to provide proper education and support especially to very poor communities with inadequate health services. Time to act is now and with improved health and well-being of residents, means improvement also of their communities.
