Related Videos On: COVID-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan (SPRP)


WHO is issuing the COVID-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan (SPRP) for 2021 and accompanying documents as a package aimed at guiding the coordinated action that we must take at national, regional, and global levels to overcome the ongoing challenges in the response to COVID-19, address inequities, and plot a course out of the pandemic. Over the past year, much has been achieved by national authorities and communities with the support of WHO, donors and partners, and an unprecedented effort by the scientific community and the private sector. The Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan 2021 (SPRP2021) builds on what we have learned about the virus and our collective response over the course of 2020, and translates that knowledge into strategic actions. This plan builds on achievements and also focuses on the new challenges, to mitigate, for example, risks related to new variants. The plan also considers the road we need to travel towards the safe, equitable and effective delivery of diagnostics and vaccines as part of the overall strategy to successfully tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. As leader of the global incident management support team (IMST) structure, the UN Crisis Management Team (UNCMT), and as a founder of the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator, WHO harnesses the world’s technical and operational expertise to translate knowledge into coordinated action.

Six cases of the new Brazilian variant of coronavirus have been detected in the UK for the first time, three in England and three in Scotland. All but one of the cases are linked to travel from Brazil. Public Health England said the risk to the wider community is considered low, but it has increased testing in the South Gloucestershire area, where two of the cases were found. There are concerns that the Brazilian variant may be more contagious than the original virus and less likely to be contained by the existing vaccines.

The Prime Minister has defended plans for teachers to grade GCSE and A-level pupils in England this summer calling it a "good compromise". The decision follows last year's exam fiasco when grades were decided by an algorithm. This year grades will be decided by teachers using mock exams, coursework, essays and optional tests provided by exam boards. With so much time lost, pupils will only be assessed on what they've been taught. Results will be published earlier in August to allow more time for appeals that are expected to follow. The announcement follows similar moves in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. But there are concerns about the fairness of the approach, including the risk of grade inflation.

The “full return” of students to schools and colleges in England on March 8th is justified by the latest data and a “robust” Covid testing regime, according to the UK government. The Education Secretary Gavin Williamson also addressed the fact that hundreds of thousands of students have missed months of classroom education. He announced an extra £400m for what's being billed as a catch-up programme. £302m of that will be spent on the most disadvantaged pupils in primary and secondary schools.

Yemen was already the Arab world’s poorest country before its civil war escalated in 2015. Houthi rebels, backed by Iran, control most of the country.
