Covering COVID-19

By Manas Roshan (, Programme Officer, ICSF

Since its outbreak in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, COVID-19 has spread to 202 countries and territories, leading to 14,508,892 confirmed cases and 606,206 deaths as on 20 July, 2020. ICSF SAMUDRA and DC daily news alerts have tracked the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak on fisheries value chains since the early stages of the pandemic. Launched in May, ICSF’s new website ( has drawn on these news alerts and information from ICSF’s networks of members and partners to map the effects of lockdown restrictions, closure of markets and restaurants, and changes in demand and supply of fish and fish products around the world. The website presents information on specific sectoral issues, guidelines and best practices at national, regional and international levels, on two parameters – impact on fishing communities and relief measures by governments and multilateral bodies. The website will also disseminate new information as signs of recovery emerge in the fisheries sector.
