Coronavirus (COVID-19): infection control and prevention measures

This Cochrane Library Special Collection pulls together the Cochrane Reviews that are identified as most directly relevant to the prevention of infection.

It includes reviews that evaluate the effects of interventions referenced in the WHO interim guidance for the 2019 coronavirus outbreak (28 January 2020), as well as other potentially relevant reviews from three Cochrane Networks: Cochrane Public Health and Health Systems; Cochrane Musculoskeletal, Oral, Skin and Sensory; and Cochrane Acute and Emergency Care.

This Special Collection will be updated to ensure it remains applicable as the situation changes, and as WHO guidance evolves. It will also draw on the knowledge of Cochrane groups in affected regions.

Infection Prevention & Control Precautions During the COVID-19 Outbreak

Which infection prevention and control precautions should health workers use when delivering vaccines during the COVID-19 outbreak? In this video, made in collaboration with the World Health Organization, we show you the minimum IPC requirements that should be in place.

The WHO, UNICEF, and other agencies estimate that 80+ million children are at risk of diseases such as measles and polio, because COVID-19 has disrupted vaccination in many areas.

“We cannot let our fight against one disease come at the expense of long-term progress in our fight against other diseases,” said Henrietta Fore, UNICEF Executive Director. “We have effective vaccines against measles, polio and cholera. While circumstances may require us to temporarily pause some immunization efforts, these immunizations must restart as soon as possible, or we risk exchanging one deadly outbreak for another.”

Establishing an Infection Prevention Program in a Nursing Home, With an Emphasis on COVID-19

Participants of this webinar learned to identify the key components of an infection prevention program in the nursing home setting; describe the best-practice strategies needed to establish a program; and understand the key elements necessary for ongoing infection prevention surveillance.
