Apart from these, there are also many guidelines offered such as the usage of masks and gloves while traveling or coming in contact with someone else. 

But what about the people who are involved with the patients of coronavirus, treating them so that they can get back to health soon? For such professionals, just having the general gloves and masks will not help. They need a special PPE kit in order to stay safe and also in order to cut out the spread of the virus to someone else.

Different Types of PPE Kit

There are a number of PPE kits that are available that the professionals can use depending upon the requirements. Some of the important items of the kit are:

  • Face shields,
  • Glasses and goggles,
  • Gloves,
  • Headcovers,
  • Masks,
  • Masks with respirators,
  • Shoe covers,
  • Full gown

The coronavirus can spread out to people by touch and also by droplets. Hence, professionals who are involved in the treatment of the patients need to have a proper PPE kit so that there is not a single option left to get transmitted with the virus while offering treatment to the patients. 

Not just the healthcare professionals, the kit is also required for people who are indulged in other practices such as dealing with the dead bodies of the people who have died of coronavirus, and others.

Benefits of using PPE Kit

The usage of the PPE kit is very well understood during the spread of the virus Ebola. Due to the same reasons, the kit is being used now in many countries to deal with coronavirus patients. Here are some of the very basic reasons due to which making use of the PPE Kit is extremely important during this pandemic situation. 

  • Health professionals such as doctors and nurses are in direct contact with the patients of coronavirus and hence they are at maximum risk. The use of general masks and gloves used by the general public is not enough in this case and hence making use of the PPE kit is the ultimate thing to be used.
  • If the doctors and other health experts will get contaminated with the virus, it will become really hard for a country to deal with the increasing number of patients getting infected by coronavirus. Hence, it is very important to keep these health professionals safe and secure so that they can deal with infected patients and can comfort them. 
  • Just treating the patients infected by coronavirus is not the only thing. There are also a number of people involved in the process such as the ambulance professionals who bring in the patients till the hospital or even the people who deal with dead bodies of the people who have died. If proper precautions are not provided, many of these people do not take care of their responsibilities with 100% commitment due to the fear of getting infected.
