Ricky@jhpiego...Thanks Dr. Inglesby. With NPI's, can you comment a) on universal mask use as an alternative for social distancing? (In most large urban cities in LMIC, living conditions in informal settlements make it difficult for social distancing); b) with the R number, what would be the data points to use to calculating r numbers in LMIC? thanks in advance
Hello, Mutsa from Zimbabwe
We will have this seminar recording posted along with our other recordings and resources here: http://hopkinsglobalhealth.org/resources/covid-19-resources/strategies-to-support-the-covid-19-response-in-lmics-a-virtual-seminar-series
What are the thoughts or hypothesis when could COVID 19 be no more a public health threat? even after a vaccine introduction.
Ricky@jhpiego thanks so much for the insightful presentation on social distancing...when messaging social distancing to flatten the curve, .what would be your recommendation to communicate to the general community the physical distancing plus the other NPI measures like use of masks, self quarantine hand hygiene etc. for providers in facilities and community how would that impact how they provide essential services in MNH, FP etc. ….thanks again for sharing your thoughts
Some organizations are asking people to take their temp at home and not to come in if they have a fever of >100. Do you think this is feasible/useful? Are there any data or information from which to extrapolate about adherence to these recs by individuals? Thanks!
Thanks for a nice presentation and discussion.
GHSP has published a couple articles that focus on LMICs and might be of interest. Will the Higher-Income Country Blueprint for COVID-19 Work in Low- and Lower Middle-Income Countries? https://doi.org/10.9745/GHSP-D-20-00217.
