Challenge

In response to the outbreak of the Coronavirus in China, ARROWS, an airborne medical search and rescue organization run by the Peace Winds has begun emergency support activities transporting essential medical supplies including N95 masks, medical protective clothing, disposable gloves, face covers, and medical hats to China. Assessing stocks at pharmacies in Shanghai, masks and disinfectants are sold out indicating high demand. Over 90% of restaurants & increasing number of supermarkets closing.

Solution

The first of Peace Winds staff arrived in Shanghai on the 27th of January. Working closely with the local welfare organization and partner group Ramunion, Peace Winds is distributing essential emergency medical supplies to hospitals in Wuhan and Shanghai. On the 30th of January, as part of the first set of supplies, 1680 N95 masks and 1900 disposable medical latex gloves were delivered to the Changhai Hospital. In Wuhan City and nearby Shanghai, hospitals are running low on medical supplies.

Long-Term Impact

Global concerns are growing over the Coronavirus outbreak which originated in the inland city of Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. As of February 2020, more than 25,000 people have been infected in China and cases have begun to appear and increase all around the world including in North America, Europe, and other Asian countries including Japan. Distributing masks and other necessary relief supplies through local partners provides critical supplies necessary to containing responding to the pandemic.
