In order to win this inevitable battle and fight against COVID-19, we must work together and share our experiences around the world. The First Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine has treated 104 patients with confirmed COVID-19 in the past 50 days, and their experts wrote real treatment experience night and day, and quickly published this Handbook of COVID-19 Prevention and Treatment, expecting to share their invaluable practical advice and references with medical staff around the world. This handbook compared and analyzed the experience of other experts in China, and provides good reference to key departments such as hospital infection management, nursing, and outpatient clinics. This handbook provides comprehensive guidelines and best practices by China’s top experts for coping with COVID-19.

This handbook, provided by the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University, describes how organisations can minimise the cost while maximising the effect of measures to manage and control the corona-virus outbreak. The handbook also discusses why hospitals and other healthcare institutions should have command centres when encountering a large-scale emergency in the context of COVID-19. This handbook also includes the following:

  • Technical strategies for addressing issues during emergencies.
  • Treatment methods to treat the critically ill.
