Covid-19 : Exchange of Doctors Experience

Given the unprecedented nature of COVID-19 outbreak, most countries were caught off-guard. Healthcare systems around the world were over burdened with patients with little to no preparation. Bangladesh Youth Empowerment Society (BYES) and Human Aid Bangladesh (HAD) is forming an alliance to bring Bangladeshi born doctors living abroad with significant exposure to COVID-19 patients to share their experience with their Banglaadeshi compatriots. We are teaming up to organize a series of webinars to help our physicians better prepare for the fight against COVID-19. Eventually, we also plan to roll out live webinars answering COVID-19 related questions for the broader population.

Corona Virus Updates from WHO


Source: WHO

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.

Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.

The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol based rub frequently and not touching your face.

The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it’s important that you also practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow).

At this time, there are no specific vaccines or treatments for COVID-19. However, there are many ongoing clinical trials evaluating potential treatments. WHO will continue to provide updated information as soon as clinical findings become available.
