COVID-19 Micro Learning Activities on ECDC Virtual Academy

ECDC is pleased to offer a series of micro learning activities dedicated to COVID-19, the disease caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak. These interactive e-learning modules are now accessible through the ECDC Virtual Academy (EVA), an online platform designed to enhance Disease Prevention & Control capabilities within the European Union and its Member States.

The primary goal of these micro learning activities is to mitigate the impact of outbreaks by implementing non-pharmaceutical countermeasures that reduce disease transmission. The activities focus on four key areas:

  1. Personal Protective Equipment: Learn about the proper use of personal protective equipment to safeguard healthcare professionals and prevent the spread of infections.
  2. Environmental Countermeasures: Explore strategies to create a safe and hygienic environment that minimizes the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
  3. Social Distancing Countermeasures: Understand the importance of social distancing measures and their effectiveness in preventing the spread of the virus within communities.
  4. Travel Related Countermeasures: Gain insights into travel-related measures and their role in reducing the introduction and spread of COVID-19 across different regions.

These micro learning activities draw upon two essential ECDC reports: “Guidelines for the use of non-pharmaceutical measures to delay and mitigate the impact of 2019-nCoV” and “Personal protective equipment (PPE) needs in healthcare settings for the care of patients with suspected or confirmed novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).” These materials are based on the latest knowledge of SARS-CoV-2 and evidence from other viral respiratory pathogens, such as SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, and influenza viruses.

By engaging with these micro learning activities, you will enhance your understanding of COVID-19 prevention and control measures. The content is continuously updated to reflect the most recent scientific advancements and guidelines.

Join the ECDC Virtual Academy today to access these valuable resources and strengthen your capacity to combat COVID-19. Together, we can effectively respond to this global health challenge and protect the well-being of our communities.
