On “Level One” Infection Control Practices

By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA

QUERY: We’ve been hearing about PPE since the start of the Corvid-19 epidemic. But, what is it; really? One of my B-School students recently asked me.

ANSWER: PPE is protective clothing, helmets, goggles, garments or equipment to protect one from injury. The hazards include physical, electrical, heat, chemicals, biological and airborne particulates. It may be worn for occupational safety, health purposes, sports and other recreational activities.

INFECTIONS: In terms of high consequence infectious disease control however; we must get a bit more granular in detail.
