Medical and nursing students from AKU's Society for Promoting Innovation in Education's community wing along with CIME designed a course to educate school kids about day-to-day life during COVID-19 pandemic.
The one-and-a-half-hour online course includes knowledge about symptoms, prevention tips, self-screening advice, and guidelines for self-isolation and quarantine. The course includes two exciting quizzes along with interactive animations to help the audience navigate their lives during COVID-19 in the safest possible way.
Participants said that the course equipped them with authentic information to counter prevailing misconceptions running around and aided them in structuring their daily routine in accordance with the scientific guidelines. A pilot was rolled out for the Dawood Public School which turned out to be a great success. The course is now being offered to all interested schools.
“This initiative will help us supplement the efforts of our hospital frontline staff by reducing the spread of the disease thereby reducing the pressure on our healthcare facilities," says Muhammad Ali, head of the SPIE's community wing.
