This category concerns information on what facilities should be doing to be prepared to respond to a case of an emerging respiratory virus such as the novel coronavirus, how to identify a case once it occurs, and how to properly implement IPC measures to ensure there is no further transmission to health care workers or to other patients and others in the healthcare facility. For more information go to Infection, Prevention and Control for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The category is also intended for content that supports clinicians who are working in intensive care units (ICUs) in low and middle-income countries and managing adult and pediatric patients with severe forms of acute respiratory infection (SARI), including severe pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), sepsis and septic shock. Content should provide hands-on practical advice to be used by health care professionals involved in clinical care management of COVID-19 or other emerging respiratory viral epidemics.
