    • Description:
      Updated Nov. 19, 2020 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is working closely with international partners to respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. CDC provides technical assistance to help other countries increase their ability to prevent, detect, and respond to health threats, including COVID-19. This document is provided by CDC and is intended for use in non-US healthcare settings. Alert: CDC does not recommend or endorse any strategies for personal protective equipment (PPE) use that differ from standard infection prevention and control (IPC) practice. In times of crisis and global supply shortages, emergency strategies are temporary approaches for consideration. However, efforts to scale up rapid production of PPE should be prioritized
