Meteoworld : April 2020
The overall health and performance of WMO coordinated Global Observing System is under continued monitoring during the current COVID-19 outbreak. Large parts of the system, for instance its satellite components and many ground-based observing networks, are either partly or fully automated, and are therefore expected to continue functioning without significant degradation for several weeks, and in some cases even longer.
Congress also endorsed a package of measures to strengthen early warnings against hazards like floods and tropical cyclones, and to ensure that these become part and parcel of humanitarian operations. It decided to spur work on a Global Multi-hazard Alert System that would pool information from national and regional systems that already exist, or are being planned.
