Health institutions and health workers are on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19. Our efforts to curtail the spread of the virus hinge on the adaptability and commitment of our health workers and institutions. At the same time, they need protection from infection and form the stigma and discrimination that comes from the fear of the virus. This section contains health-care communication materials developed and used by USAID partners as well as other government and non-government agencies that empower health professionals and institutions to address this emergency as well as to help them get the respect and support they deserve.
More often than not COVID-19 patients recover fully without requiring hospitalisation. However, it is important to know when to seek medical advice and hospitalisation. In this video Dr Anna informs that if the patient is experiencing difficulty in breathing, breathlessness or chest pain they must go to a hospital. He also highlights other symptoms that warrant a visit to the hospital. This video can be played in healthcare centers, residential complexes and also be shared on the social media.
