WHO Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) training: Simulation exercise

April 16, 2020

Overview:
To support countries’ preparedness effort on the COVID-19 outbreak, WHO`s Department of Health Security and Preparedness has developed a generic COVID-19 tabletop exercise package.

The exercise aims to examine and strengthen existing plans, procedures and capabilities to manage an imported case of 2019-nCov and targets the health authorities at the national level.

The simulation package consists of different elements including:

  • A participants’ guide and a facilitators’ guide to explain what is expected from the different people involved in the preparation and running of the exercise.
  • A PowerPoint presentation to support the facilitation of the exercise and its subsequent debriefing
  • A set of reference documents and technical guidance on 2019-nCovThe package highlights clearly where some minor adaptions are needed to make the simulation country-specific and more relevant to the participants.
