After an introduction about what is Coronavirus and how the disease spreads, we presented statistical charts, which showed that cases of COVID-19 in Bolivia were still increasing.
The second and main part of the technical talk was focused on practical biosecurity recommendations to prevent a COVID-19 outbreak on the farm. Some of these advices are:
• All material coming from outside should not enter into the facilities, or at least it should be disinfected, because materials in which coronavirus persists can transmit the infection.
• Workers should wash their hands more frequently. They also should practice social distancing and wear a mask if they are close to somebody.
• Staff should work in shifts and in stable groups.
• If a worker is sick, he should stay at home.
In brief, a review of the main precautionary measures against COVID-19 was conducted in order to reduce the impact of the virus.
Given that the best way to fight the disease is be well informed, LIVISTO will keep offering these sort of activities to help the livestock sector address the challenges that may emerge and adjust to a new normal.
