As of April 1, over 930,000 people in 203 countries have been infected with this virus. It's a shock. Schools have shut down worldwide, and hospitals are unable to deal with the number of patients they are getting. As a whole, humanity cannot let a virus win over us. We've won over viruses before; smallpox, SARS, polio (almost, but in 2017 there were only 22 cases worldwide), and more. Donate to this campaign to send money to hospitals, supplying equipment like ventilators, face masks, personal protection equipment, sanitation supplies. We've interviewed Dr. Suprotim Basu, and Dr. Lopamudra Nagchaudhri, both based in the UK, and they have given us some valuable insights from the frontline. Doctors in the UK are fearing for their lives because they do not have enough equipment. It is the same state in the U.S.A., which was confirmed by Dr. Mallika Vellichetty. The Red Cross will make sure that people most affected by the Coronavirus will receive critical relief services. They will also mitigate the spread of this virus through community-based health and hygiene promotion, access to basic services and fighting stigma. The funds can also expand case detection, surveillance and contact tracing, among other activities.
The American Red Cross is also providing data expertise to the global Red Cross Red Crescent network and has deployed a communications expert to bring attention to humanitarian needs and combat rumors about the virus.
