Post a reply: Disinfecting MUAC Tape in nutrition surveillance clinic.

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Hi everyone,

Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, how we can protect the frontline health workers ,children under 5 years of age, and PLW as well in nutrition clinics when taking the anthropometric measurements? How can we disinfect the MUAC tape when use it for different persons?

For example, I thought of 1) disinfecting the scles, the boards before and after each visit. 2) Using PPE when the beneficiary has respiratory symptoms (according to WHO rational use of PPE). What other precaution measures can we take?

Thanks,
