The Covid-19 outbreak has the significant potential to stretch and cripple national infrastructures in many countries around the world. The impacts of this collapse on health, food, and economy will hit the most vulnerable groups the hardest. Frontline health workers are likely to be stretched and pulled the hardest as health facilities struggle to maintain capacity. This may mean the governments re-align staff and close non corona response programs. Supply chains both for nutrition supplies but also wider across food and commodities both nationally and internationally may slow or even stop. Maintaining and supporting community-based interventions will be essential to protect our commitments in nutrition for the survive breakthrough.
