As of this writing, the COVID-19 pandemic has spread to 185 countries in all continents. As national governments are rapidly developing COVID-19 response policies, strategies and programmes, UNICEF and the Global Nutrition Cluster partners have produced guidance to mitigate the potential negative impact on the pandemic on maternal and child nutrition.
 
In the past two weeks we have shared widely the guidance on Infant and Young Child Feeding in the Context of COVID-19 and the Management of Child Wasting in the Context of COVID-19. Today, I am pleased to share with you these two guidance documents in Arabic, French, English, Russian, and Spanish.
 
The success of the global response to the pandemic will also depend on our ability to support national governments, development and humanitarian partners, and practitioners with accurate information in their preferred language. We hope these guidance documents in multiple languages will expand access to essential information by thousands involved with the response to the pandemic near and far.
