With the relaxing of certain measures, an increased number of critical staff attended offices to ensure continuity of operations across all programmes. As of 30 June, the US$ 93.4 million updated COVID-19 Flash Appeal was 53 per cent funded (including con­rmed pledges), with the Syria portion being 35 per cent funded (including con­rmed pledges).
