WHO: Coronavirus advice for the public - Myth busters (2) Clinical guidance for health workers

7 February, 2020

It may be a good idea to have a group from within HIFA to take on queries from health care workers across the globe

There is plenty of information on the virus and its clinical management available online free of cost.

However from the perspective of a health care worker or doctor confronted with a clinical issue what is important is to be able to get a direct response to his or her query.

This can be done by bringing together a panel of experts who have direct personal experience in various facets of management and have it moderated by a group to make it meaningful.

Can some members of HIFA form a group which takes the lead in this direction?
