Pandemic Management: Strategies to Prevent the Spread of COVID 19
Pandemic Management strategies are needed to prevent spread of any infectious disease. Worldwide cooperation and coordination is necessary. Containment is key in preventing person to person transmission. Incident Command is critical for coordinated responses. Individual and community activities can be initiated to prevent spread and to ensure that everyone knows what to do and has the resources to do it. Although high risk and vulnerable populations are more susceptible, no one is immune. We can improve our approach and learn from actions others have taken that have been effective in preventing spread.
Learn more about infectious pandemic management strategies used with Covid-19, and approaches to prevent spread from our Pandemic Management presentation.
