There is one clinical trial.
To respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, investigators will be deploying community health workers, equipped with mobile technology, and accompanied by youth to visit households door to door to screen for symptoms of COVID-19, isolate, test, and manage suspected cases of COVID-19. The community health workers and youth will educate households about preventive measures including frequent handwashing and home management of mild cases. Simultaneously, investigators will work with nurses, doctors, and clinical officers, to test and treat more severe cases of COVID-19 in health facilities. Our goals are: to visit every household in Siaya county covering a population of close to 1 million, and to train and support health workers working in 32 health facilities with oxygen capacity in Siaya to reduce the morbidity and mortality related to COVID19 and other conditions.
