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.”
