SARS-CoV-2: technical reports on IPC

Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) is a scientific and practical approach designed to prevent harm caused by infections to patients and healthcare workers.


In Italy, in response to the COVID-19 epidemic, the Istituto Superiore di Sanità, has set up an ad hoc working group on infection prevention and control that is responsible, among other things, for the publication of a series of technical reports offering guidance on IPC.


Please note: the following is a selection of ISS reports on infection prevention and control for COVID-19. For a full list of the ISS technical reports on COVID-19, please visit the dedicated page (in Italian).
