One moment, please – INTRODUCTION
Candidates were educated regarding the stage in which patients should be treated in PHCs and CHCs and the stage in which transfer to higher centres was required. Many of these trained MOs and CHOs were later posted in critical areas after training and contributed to patient management.
Online training is useful as it can be provided to candidates at various locations within a short period of time. Further research on effectively delivering medical education online may help unlock its full potential.
We would like to thank Jhpiego Corporation for their technical support in completing the project and for providing all the facilities needed for the online training program.

Mian A, Khan S. CBS 2 has been unable to determine which agency sent the masks to Chicago or how much of your tax dollars were spent on them.
The teacher’s concern has a basis in fact. The masks were pulled and not distributed to healthcare workers three months after failing federal testing.
And, the CDC cautions “other workers” to take those test results into consideration before using them. But, questions remained about the specific masks actually sent to CPS and Chicagoans throughout the city in January. We hired ECRI to test some of those masks. ECRI is an independent nonprofit that had conducted the very same federal testing for healthcare organizations in , using the same methods and machines as NIOSH.
We sent ECRI a smaller sample of 20 masks. We received them from teachers and community organizations. None of the masks in our smaller sample failed the filtration testing. However, another concern appeared. Marcus Schabacker had never seen before, “The box said it should only be worn for four hours. He added that the smaller sample size we provided could help explain the differences in test results, “We didn’t test as many. So, If you would really want to compare apples to apples, you would really have to go back to a larger sample size.
Schabacker says anyone no matter their occupation, especially those who are immune-compromised, should keep those test results in mind, when deciding whether to use this brand of KN95 mask. You can literally think of it as a physical barrier to prevent the virus getting through to you,” he said. The risk of getting infected gets exponentially up the more virus gets through.
We took the teacher’s concern, the May test results, ECRI’s test results and the box recommendation to only wear the Zhejiang Baiyi mask for four hours to various city and community leaders. Community leaders expressed concern but did not want to speak on camera.
CTU President Jesse Sharkey said teachers regularly work seven-hour days, “Now to hear that there’s a shelf life… of four hours. That should just add to our concerns. And, the city’s health commissioner, Dr. Allison Arwady agreed to appear via zoom with us for an in-depth interview on this topic.
CBS 2 asked her when and what the Chicago Department of Public Health knew about the masks and the failed federal testing. She did not answer directly but said, “KN95 masks are a definite step up from, you know, some of the cloth masks. These masks remained in storage until this year. We then asked if teachers and students had the right to know about the failed federal testing and the four-hour recommended time limit for wearing the masks.
