Every organization and institute are worried about the global outbreak of coronavirus disease or COVID-19. After the WHO (World Health Organization) announced, COVID-19 as a pandemic on 12-03-2020, many countries are following strict measures to protect the citizens from the deadly disease. COVID-19 is a recently identified virus which can quickly spread. It has several symptoms like influenza and is treated differently. CDC or widely known as Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, which is the national public health institute of the United States, has updated the guidelines on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for health care personnel.
Let us first understand how COVID-19 spreads
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
- Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
- Respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs
Can someone spread the virus without being sick?
- People are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest).
- Some spread might be possible before people show symptoms; there have been reports of this occurring with this new coronavirus, but this is not thought to be the primary way the virus spreads.
As the medical teams gear up to help the affected patients with COVID-19, they need to take precautionary steps to avoid themselves from getting infected. Personal protective equipment, or PPE, protects its user against any physical harm or hazards that the workplace environment may present. It is important because it exists as a preventative measure for industries that are known to be more hazardous, like manufacturing, construction sites and most importantly, the healthcare industry. Medical workers need to wear PPE to keep themselves safe from this infectious disease. Not only do they have to follow the norms for their safety but given that COVID-19 spreads fast and quickly, the medical workers and employees in different organizations need to wear PPE to make sure they don’t cover the disease. Organizations will have to ensure that their employees and medical workers are maintaining the norms of PPE.
