Mobility-guided modeling of the COVID-19 pandemic in Metro Manila
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a novel respiratory disease first identified in Wuhan, China, that is caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). To better understand the dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Philippines, we have used real-time mobility data to modify the DELPHI epidemiological model recently developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and to simulate the pandemic in Metro Manila.
Displacements in the Philippines in a Post-COVID-19 world: A recovery focus
Millions of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the Philippines experience human rights issues during their displacement. Their rights and access to basic life-saving services are impacted by their forced movement and its resulting, often prolonged, displacement. Durable solutions are also less prioritised in displacement management. Though a legal framework on disaster governance exists, it lacked a human rights perspective that could integrate human rights standards into humanitarian support.
