The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has launched an online course on infection prevention and control (ICP) for health workers, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection transmission in healthcare settings.⁣

The Director-General of NCDC, Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu, on Sunday in Abuja, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the online course would be available to the general public, particularly the healthcare workers.⁣

According to him, the programme is aimed at reducing the risk of transmission of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases while administering health care in the country.⁣

“As of July 4, a total of 28,167 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 634 deaths have been recorded by NCDC.⁣

“Additionally, as of June 2, about 812 healthcare workers have been infected in the country, with over 230,000 infected globally,”
he noted.⁣

Ihekweazu said that the national strategy in terms of response to COVID-19 had been multifaceted.⁣

He added that in the absence of a vaccine or cure, compliance with IPC measures remained one of the most effective interventions to control the outbreak.⁣

The director-general said that the NCDC had made efforts to rapidly strengthen the capacity of frontline healthcare workers in infection prevention and control, wherever health care was provided.⁣

I'm very curious to know more about these courses. Now I'm creating my own courses and therefore learning all the available information and examples. I'm also looking for a platform for creating and promoting courses that don't require special training and skills. I have reviewed Ojowo capabilities and I'm thinking about using it. For me, the main thing is abilities to create mini-courses, the preparation of which takes little time.
