Subject in Focus: Online interactive courses for Points of entry

WHO continues to provide technical guidance in the context of COVID-19 for ports, airports, and ground crossings, including for conveyances. This week two online interactive courses have been published on the WHO COVID-19 website. These are based on guidance documents already published that were developed with input from the International Maritime Organization, International Civil Aviation Organization, International Air Transport Association as well as major industry associations. The interactive courses highlight important information to reinforce learning through active recall — by engaging learners to answer short quizzes and respond to different scenarios in a safe learning environment.

Online course for the management of ill travelers at point of entry

This interactive e-learning course is based on the WHO Interim Guidance for Management of ill travelers at Points of Entry –international airports, seaports, and ground crossings – in the context of the COVID-19 outbreak. This course is intended for National IHR Focal Points, public health authorities and operators at points of entry, conveyance operators, and other stakeholders.

Access the online course.

Online course for operational considerations for managing COVID-19 cases/outbreaks onboard ships

This course has been developed using the WHO Interim Guidance for Operational considerations for managing COVID-19 cases/outbreak onboard ships. It is intended for any authority involved in public health response to a COVID-19 public health event onboard ships, including IHR National FocalPoints (NFP), port health authorities, local, provincial and national health surveillance and response systems, as well as port operators and ship operators.

Access the online course.

Recommendations and Advice for the Public

If you are not in an area where COVID-19 is spreading or have not traveled from an area where COVID-19 is spreading or have not been in contact with an infected patient, your risk of infection is low. It is understandable that you may feel anxious about the outbreak. Get the facts from reliable sources to help you accurately determine your risks so that you can take reasonable precautions (see Frequently Asked Questions). Seek guidance from WHO, your healthcare provider, your national public health authority or your employer for accurate information on COVID-19 and whether COVID-19 is circulating where you live. It is important to be informed of the situation and take appropriate measures to protect yourself and your family (see Protection measures for everyone).

If you are in an area where there are cases of COVID-19 you need to take the risk of infection seriously. Follow the advice of WHO and guidance issued by national and local health authorities. For most people, COVID-19 infection will cause mild illness however, it can make some people very ill and, in some people, it can be fatal. Older people, and those with pre-existing medical conditions (such as cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease or diabetes) are at risk for severe disease (See Protection measures for persons who are in or have recently visited (past 14 days) areas where COVID-19 is spreading).
