The PRAKARSA Talk #12
Protecting Elderly Amidst COVID-19 Pandemic
COVID-19 is a respiratory disease caused by SARS-CoV-2. This disease began to spread among humans since December 2019, starting in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. More people are replacing COVID-19 
which can only change lightly. However, about 1 in 6 people can overcome severe symptoms, such as releasing pneumonia (pneumonia), which causes shortness of breath. This usually appears gradually.
For the elderly, viral infections can cause more severe symptoms than young adults or children. Although most people who manage to overcome only minor problems, in the elderly this disease can lead to death. 
Most deaths occurred in COVID-19 patients who rotated 80 years and over, with a percentage reaching 14.8%. Unfortunately, health facilities in testing and treating the community are limited. This has created 
different level of priorities in providing the services. In addition, elderly is more disadvantaged as they are poorer, lack of information in related to the pandemic and the governments’ measurement, as well as
lack of mobility in accessing the health services. 
However, WHO has encouraged the governments across the world scaling-up their responses, existing guidance, planning, and implementation for the vulnerable group including elderly. WHO has seen that 
the measures are often insufficiently capture the risks and challenges faced by older people in the context of COVID-19. 
The webinar has attempted to discuss variety of measure taken by the government particularly focusing on social protection, cash transfer and health care in lower and middle-income countries for the elderly 
amidst the pandemic. 
• Sharing on elderly protection policies amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, both in the developed countries and the developing countries
• Developing policies option on social protection, health care, cash transfer the for elderly amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
