The global COVID-19 crisis hit the occupied Palestinian territory in early March 2020, when the first cases of people having the virus were confirmed. This triggered the declaration of a state of emergency by the Palestinian Prime Minister and the imposition of restrictions to contain the spread. The humanitarian community is supporting the authorities in managing the crisis.
What is the situation?
How does the humanitarian community support?
The humanitarian community quickly prepared a detailed plan, which was launched on 27 March 2020, updated on 25 April, and expanded with an updated financial requirement in August 2020, and is acting upon it. Humanitarian organizations and funds have re-allocated and raised donations required for successful implementation and are constantly updating the necessary interventions based on developments. OCHA is issuing a situation report, mapping what people need, what support has been given and what needs to be resolved.
