Daily Noon Briefing Highlights – 2 February 2021


Tropical Cyclone Ana made landfall in the island nation of Fiji two days ago.

Some 480,000 people have been affected, including more than 10,000 people who sought shelter in evacuation centres.

The cyclone caused widespread flooding and damage to infrastructure.

In support of the Government-led response efforts, 39 assessment teams supported by OCHA have been deployed to affected areas to start collecting more information on the impact of the cyclone.

No request for international assistance has been made at this stage. The UN stands by to support further with the humanitarian response.
