Situation Report No.4-2020
• The number of casualties countrywide due to explosive ordnance has increased from last year. The most notable increase is in
Rakhine State which accounts for nearly 53% of casualties.
• To improve hygiene practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19, UNICEF supported the installation of 6,365 handwashing
stations reaching nearly 1.7 million people across the country.
• UNICEF supported the registration and attendance of 268 ‘volunteer teachers’ working in IDP camps at the Ministry of
Education’s new curriculum training. Teachers who work in humanitarian areas were unable to register without UNICEF
support as they do not have national registration cards.
• UNICEF-led clusters prioritized ensuring safe continuation of programmes while mitigating COVDI-19 transmission risks
between agencies and beneficiaries.
