Mozambique – COVID-19 Preparedness Assessment in Resettlement Sites Report 14 (December 2020)
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) in collaboration with the Government of Mozambique’s National Disaster Management Agency (INGC) conducted an assessment in the resettlement sites from 25 November to 17 December 2020, with the sole purpose to inform government and humanitarian partners on preparedness levels and precautionary measures currently available in resettlement sites hosting populations displaced by Cyclone Idai. The information gathered is intended to help partners plan interventions. This information will further allow partners to identify recommended health and site preparation measures to prevent and contain an outbreak in the resettlement sites in the central region.
Focal points in Muconja and Mdhala, both situated in Chibabava district in Sofala province, reported the arrival of 12 Mozambican migrant workers, returning from South Africa, who joined their families in the resettlement sites in the past month.
