CORONAVIRUS: Advice for chiropractors. June 15, 2020

June 15, 2020

PDF version

On March 11, 2020, COVID-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). As of June 14, 2020, there have been over 7.69 million confirmed cases globally. There are currently over 427,000 confirmed deaths. Chiropractors are primary contact health care professionals and to protect themselves, their patients and their communities they must stay current with the latest scientific evidence, information and advice. In many countries around the world chiropractors have ceased providing direct, hands-on care to patients in response to governmental or health policy advice. The global situation regarding COVID-19 is evolving daily and advice may change over time pending developments and emerging scientific knowledge. This updated advice note is current as of June 14, 2020, based on WHO source material and has been produced with advice and guidance from the WFC Research Committee and WFC Public Health Committee.

WHAT IS COVID-19?

Coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) is the infectious disease caused by the recently discovered severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections in humans. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. On January 30, 2020 the International Health Regulations Committee of the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak a "public health emergency of international concern" and on March 11, 2020 it was officially declared a pandemic.

MASKS - UPDATED ADVICE

The World Health Organization (WHO) updated its advice on masks on June 5, 2020. It advises that masks should be worn as one part of a comprehensive strategy to suppress transmission and save lives. Masks are not sufficient on their own to prevent transmission and other measures, such as hand-washing and physical distancing, are equally important. Full WHO guidance on the use of masks can be found here.
