The Department of Information and Health Education of the Ministry of Health, in cooperation with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), has drafted a guidance document to assist health workers in Libya caring for Coronavirus patients.

The scientific publications include more than 400 copies of handbooks, as well as posters and leaflets, containing guidelines on how to deal with suspected or confirmed Covid-19 cases and guidance for using personal protective gear.

The scientific manuals will be distributed to 40 health facilities as a first stage, to be followed later by a second stage to cover other health facilities across the country, as said by the Health Ministry.
