Summary

The Philippines has thousands of seafarers and Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) which might carry the novel corona-virus back to their home-place and spread the contagion. The virus emanates from Wuhan, China and is now spreading worldwide. This project will educate local people by means of leaflets, social media and small meetings on how to detect symptoms, what to do in order to prevent transmission and how to practice health precautions when a case starts to appear and infect people.

Challenge

The novel corona-virus emanating from Wuhan, China is spreading rapidly mainly due to the ease of travel nowadays. The Philippines has thousands of seafarers and overseas workers who may be unknowing carriers and spreaders of the virus when they go back home or when their ships dock in the country. With little education, the virus can spread quickly with destructive impact to the people. The need for education while this is still not the case is urgent and the time is now!

Solution

We will provide education campaign via multiple sources and mainly through social media, flyers and leaflets, bulletin boards and small meetings in order to inform the public about symptoms of the virus, what to do in order to prevent transmission and what health precautions to take when a suspected case arise.

Long-Term Impact

The health and wellness of people and communities is paramount. With very little education and when the virus spreads, it will spread very quickly and will result to thousands if not millions in morbidity and mortality. With pro-active prevention, the spread will be contained and damage minimal.
