Front line workers like CHWs, sanitation workers, police forces and ambulance drivers are out in their communities daily. In India we call them our COVID Warriors as are all the doctors and technicians.
Globally, front line workers might be disseminating the information given in these excellent info graphics, but not all of them might have protective gear for themselves.
I wrote a short, practicable and translatable guideline for self care in English, for COVID 19 Warriors #healthcareheros. As India is under lock down, we are sending out the translations by mobile phones to ASHA workers and other health workers. Please help me to disseminate this shareable link to front line workers in your regions.
