Free course of the Chamber Of Mines

Concerned by the current condition of the Peruvian health system, the Chamber Of Mines Of Peru offered a free webinar, open to the public, to address the second wave of COVID-19 infections.

This course is part of the COVID-19 Care Program of the Chamber Of Mines Of Peru, and was offered online and free of charge. It took place on Thursday, January 28, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Peruvian time).

Dr. César Montoya Cárdenas, coordinator of Health Sciences at CAMIPER’s School of Advanced Studies, served as the speaker. Dr. Montoya has over 35 years of experience in the public health sector and has previously acted as President of the Public Health Committee of the Board of the Peruvian College of Physicians.

This free webinar aimed to provide the attendees with a vision and panorama of the means, actions, and best methods we have to carry out in this second wave of COVID-19 infections in Peru.

In this event, the expert explained the trail and expansion of COVID-19 in Peru. He also analyzed statistics on infection cases, as well as the political actions taken by the government and the precariousness of the health system in the country.

In addition to the analysis, the course offered prevention measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19, and a “Containment Plan against COVID-19” was also carried out.

Conclusions to prevent infections during the second wave

After the event, César Montoya expressed the following conclusions to take into consideration during this second wave:

A quick and decisive measure is essential. Successful responses have involved early actions and large-scale testing, follow-up of contacts and physical isolation of sick patients, as well as rapid adaptation to changing circumstances.

Leaders must build trust and communicate with honesty. This means being upfront and in collaboration with partners and communities to help people respond appropriately to the pandemic and take all necessary precautions.

The crisis of this second wave presents an opportunity to improve the quality and scope of essential services, not only of health care but also of social protection. An example of this is the use of digital payments to reach vulnerable populations that work in the informal economy or lack access to bank accounts.

The Chamber Of Mines Of Peru, works to improve the current situation in the country by bringing together mining companies and training professionals in the mining and health sector.
