According to the address made by Minister Ebrahim Patel on 24 March 2020, the fund will be a rapid response vehicle through which contributions from citizens, communities, business and international donors can be pooled together primarily to fund four key initiatives:
• Prevent: preventative and supporting measures to “flatten the curve” by lowering infection rates
• Detect: detect and understand the magnitude of the infection problem
• Care: assist with the management of those people in hospital or medical care
• Support: support those people whose lives are disrupted by COVID-19.
