COVID-19 Cases Rising Among Populations Displaced by Eta in Honduras

The number of COVID-19 infections in the aftermath of Hurricane Eta in Honduras has increased with more than 2100 new cases and 68 deaths recorded over the last 7 days. Cases are likely to rise even more as testing has increased in the aftermath of Hurricane Eta and as COVID-19 potentially spreads among displaced populations, warns Project HOPE. Immediate action to address personal safety and public health protections are of urgent importance, with aid prioritizing frontline local health workers.
