Emergency Appeal: Covid-19 Outbreak. Misinformation kills. Free training helps save lives

Covid-19 poses an unprecedented challenge to communities and health care systems across the world. Up until 24th March 2020, almost 17,000 people have died from Covid-19 and 378,041 cases have been reported in 177 countries, with numbers increasing significantly every day.

The outlook is bleak but RedR UK is taking steps to support the global response to help bring down the rate of infection. These early interventions save lives, especially in developing countries where healthcare systems may be too weak to cope. Providing accurate information and reducing uncertainty encourages people to take appropriate action to protect themselves and their communities.
