ABSTRACT

COVID-19 Resources for India: Be a Part of the Solution, A Communication Toolkit   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "India is amid its worst health crisis in recent history, with the unprecedented second wave of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] leaving millions of citizens infected and many still who have lost their lives. A decrease in the daily number of cases earlier this year led to a sense of complacency among citizens, with a decreased compliance to healthy behaviors such as wearing masks, hand washing and physical distancing among others, which have been shown to be effective at preventing COVID-19 transmission. This, in addition to sociopolitical factors, contributed to an increase in the number of daily infections in March 2021 and pushed the health system to the brink of collapse, causing a dearth of medical supplies and hospital beds and a constant state of uncertainty and panic. [...] [This toolkit aims] to provide partners, affiliates, and citizens with shareable easy-to-understand facts, mythbusters, and guidelines on COVID-19 prevention and mitigation and on maintaining physical and emotional wellbeing. Our hope is that this toolkit serves as a useful resource for all and allows users to access and disseminate 'evidence-based' accurate information."
