COVID-19 Supply Dashboard

Since the first COVID-19 case was detected in the Central African Republic on 14 March, the Ministry of Health and Population has confirmed 4,855 cases, including 62 deaths. As of 8 October, 32,741 people have been tested. 88 per cent of the confirmed cases are attributed to local transmission. In addition to the government’s effort, the humanitarian community continues to scale up emergency response at national and local level. However, severe shortage of basic COVID-19 supplies are experienced and current pipelines are insufficient to cover the pressing needs. Urgent support is required to ensure access to healthcare and protection for health personnel on the frontline.
