There is no evidence that the Bacille Calmette-Guérin vaccine (BCG) protects people against infection with COVID-19 virus. Two clinical trials addressing this question are underway, and WHO will evaluate the evidence when it is available. In the absence of evidence, WHO does not recommend BCG vaccination for the prevention of COVID-19.
One new country/territory/area (European Region ) has reported cases of COVID-19.
WHO COVID-19 Situation Reports present official counts of confirmed COVID19 cases, thus differences between WHO reports and other sources of COVID19 data using different inclusion criteria and different data cutoff times are to be expected.
8 new countries/territories/areas (African Region , Eastern Mediterranean Region , Region of the Americas , and Western Pacific Region ) in have reported cases of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours.
