You’re Wearing A Mask Every Time You Use A Public Toilet, Right?

Our article of choice this week, although relevant, does not exactly make for pleasant reading.  It’s about how important it is to wear a mask in public conveniences if you want to help protect yourself from getting Covid-19.

Coronavirus COVID-19 Medical PPE Pandemic Use of masks

Care during & after hospitalisation due to Covid-19

This week we’d like to share a link to an article that is about three weeks old, but extremely relevant.  We deal in PPE, but what happens when this dangerous virus attacks despite all precautions?  This article is about the care given to those who become so very ill with Covid-19 – both while in hospital and afterwards.

Amongst other things, it is certainly a stark reminder of how important it is to wear PPE.

Care during and after hospitalisation for Covid-19

To this end, we’ve added another link this week – the correct procedure for putting on and taking off PPE.  It’s certainly worth a look.

How to use masks and the rational use of PPE

Hi and welcome to the first of our blogs.  Here, we will be providing links to articles regarding medical PPE and updates about Covid-19.

There is a lot of information swirling around out there and we will be posting links to websites that have information to help you, your organization and others to stay informed about what is happening with regard to Covid-19 and what is needed to deal with it.

Our first link is to a section of the World Health Organisation’s website – it concerns masks and how to wear them as well as a document summarizing WHO recommendations for “the rational use of personal protective equipment (PPE), in health care and community settings, including the handling of cargo. This document is intended for those involved in the distribution and management of PPE, as well as public health authorities and individuals in health care and community settings to understand when PPE use is most appropriate.”
