What you'll learn

With the growing threat of COVID-19 hitting the world, the enthusiasm of gaining awareness on this pandemic has become routine among the normal individual. The COVID-19 pandemic has sparked an unprecedented wave of research, data sharing, and open science as the scientific world seeks to understand the disease, track its spread, and analyze the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. The WHO estimates an average mortality rate of 3.4%, which is around 100 times higher than flu — but do note that the average is across age brackets. read more »»

Current evidence suggests that the fatality rate from Covid-19 ranges from 9% to 19% for older individuals, as well as for people with conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer and those who are immunocompromised. Even if you are not at high risk yourself, we still all have a public health obligation to take interventions that will prevent spread and overwhelm the health care system.

This can only be possible if we have a thorough and exhaustive knowledge of COVID 19 which can help us to implement it in our day-to-day life. As COVID is a respiratory infection and can spread from animals to humans and humans to humans, it has progressively become a pandemic in a short period which awakens us to build up the knowledge to how to break the chain of COVID 19. Although the Health Care Workers (HCW) are at the forefront in the battle of the COVID-19 pandemic, they are facing several challenges in delivering their duties. It is becoming apparent from the reports across the world that the long duty hours of the HCW is a major risk factor for them to acquire infection and hence it is mandatory they work in shorter shifts, based on a strict rota. This course essentially provides information about how to train HCW’s in treating a COVID patient during this difficult situation of the pandemic, precautions to be taken, how to handle a COVID patient for long hours, etc.
