MoH Guidelines: Immediate implementation of appropriate IPC measures
The Ministry of Health have released guidelines on how best to implement appropriate infection prevention and control measures for patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 within a Kenyan healthcare setting.
This post will cover current recommended IPC measures for:
Application of droplet precautions
Application of contact precautions
Application of airborne precautions when performing an aerosol generating proceedure
These guidelines are interim and will be updated from time-to-time by the Ministry of Health - we will reflect these updates here also.
