Situation At A Glance

  • Assessments identify more than 9.6 million people affected by Super Typhoon Rai and in need of humanitarian assistance, while GPH and relief actors continue emergency response and recovery efforts.
  • Rising cases of COVID-19 nationwide continue to challenge relief efforts following Super Typhoon Rai. Relief actors remain concerned that the combined effects of the super typhoon and COVID-19 pandemic may generate increased health and protection risks among vulnerable groups.
  • Limited access to safe drinking water in evacuation centers prompts an increase in diarrhea cases among internally displaced persons, while relief actors identify E. coli in many water sources across Eastern Visayas’ Southern Leyte Province due to storm-related damage to WASH infrastructure.
