Committee for Training Healthcare Professionals for COVID 19 Infections

 During the currently rapidly evolving pandemic of COVID19, guidelines, recommendations and advisories are being issued almost every day by health authorities. This disease spreads by droplets generated by infected people during sneezing and coughing. These are large droplets that can travel in the air for a distance of 1-2 m and settle on surfaces on which they may remain alive in aersol 3-4 hours or 3 days on plastic surfaces . Infected persons can also spread the infection even before the onset of symptoms and many may spread from even asymptomatic individuals. Infection is acquired by either inhalation of infected droplets or touching surfaces/ fomites contaminated with the infective droplets and then touching the eyes, nose and mouth. In an infected person, the incubation period for developing symptoms varies from 2-14 days with a median of 5 days. The clinical symptoms are variable ranging from an asymptomatic state to acute respiratory distress syndrome and multi-organ dysfunction. In adults, common symptoms include fever, cough, breathlessness, fatigue, myalgia, headache and sore throat, while vomiting, diarrhea, sneezing and conjunctivitis are uncommon manifestations. Current evidence suggests that 80-85% of cases are mild, 10-15 % are severe with lower respiratory tract involvement and 5% are critical that need intensive care that may include mechanical ventilation and oxygen treatment. The fatality rate is reportedly between 2-3% but can vary from 0.5-10%. Individual mortality is known to depend on the infected person’s age (extremes- the very young and those above 60 years of age), other diseases like hypertension, asthma, diabetes and history of treatment for chronic inflammatory diseases; whereas, the mortality in the community depends on factors like the number of people that can be reliably tested and quarantined, population density, percentage of elderly people in the population and the availability of critical care support in the hospitals.

Knowing that a number of cases will report to Hospitals, it is essential to prepare SOPs and uniform structured training for all stake-holders, who would get involved in the care of suspected and positive COVID patients. The Training committee will ensure that everyone who is involved in the care is exposed to relevant evidence-based information for personal protection and prevention of spread of infection.
