Handbook of COVID-19 Prevention and Treatment

China’s Zhejiang University School of Medicine releases book on combating the coronavirus.

In order to win this battle against COVID-19, we must work together and share our experience around the world. The First Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine treated 104 patients who tested positive for COVID-19 over a 50 period, with zero deaths in patients diagnosed with the virus, zero patients misdiagnosed, and zero infections in the medical staff. Their experts wrote about their treatment experience combating the virus night and day, and have published the Handbook of COVID-19 Prevention and Treatment, in order to share their invaluable practical advice and references with medical professionals around the world.

The handbook compares and analyzes the experience of other experts in China, gives detailed and comprehensive answers to potential questions for diagnosing and treating patients, and provides a good reference to key departments such as hospital infection management, nursing, and outpatient clinics. The handbook provides comprehensive guidelines and best practices by China's top experts for coping with COVID-19.

Key contents include?

  • Technical strategies for prevention and treatment of the epidemic
  • Treatment methods to treat the critically ill
  • Nursing methods and experience

This handbook is currently available in Chinese, English, Italian, French, Spanish, Japanese, German, Persian, Bahasa Indonesia and will be translated to Arabic soon. Other language versions contributed by volunteers will be shared as they become available. The Resources Sharing Center will continue to launch more anti-epidemic resources and provide more practical suggestions and references for medical staff worldwide.
