Objective: The study objective was to explore the episode of COVID-19 symptoms among sub-Saharan African (SSA) by examining the predicting effect of mask usage, self-medication, and personal sensitivity on the symptoms. Materials and Methods: In a cross-sectional study in the SSA population, 536 individuals were asked about the episode of COVID-19 symptoms, personal sensitivity, mask usage, and self-medication. "Hierarchical multiple linear regression statistical method" was used to evaluate the data. Results: The personal sensitivity (r=0.245<0.01), taking off face mask in enclosed public places (r=0.255<0.01) and self -medication (r=0.392<0.01) were positively associated with COVID-19 symptoms. Overall, the total predictive effect of self-medication, taking off the mask in public spaces, and personal sensitivity accounted for 21% of the variance in the episode of COVID-19 symptoms of the study population. Conclusion: Personal sensitivity, mask usage, and self -medication support understanding of the episode of COVID-19 symptoms experienced among the study population. It is important to encourage the use of masks in high-risk areas. To improve post-COVID-19 health policies, self-medication used to decrease the risk of COVID-19 infection and other related public health concerns should be reduced.

The culture of cadaver dissection remains the most commonly used method of practical teaching and learning of human anatomy. Anatomist and medical professionals considered cadaver dissection as the gold standard for teaching and learning anatomy in detail. The increase seen in the establishment of new medical training institutions globally has consequently led to a proportionate increase in the sourcing for cadavers. Moreover, the surge in mortality rates following the recent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic with no cure or approved vaccine has been a source of concern for academia, especially on the safety in the usage of cadavers for dissection. Notwithstanding, several countries continue to depend on unclaimed bodies as the primary source for cadavers, regardless of the cause of death. Besides, body donation is also usually reported to be strained during disease outbreaks thereby putting countries that depend solely on it in a dilemma. This study highlighted the recommended standard operating procedures (SOPs) to be imbibed in gross anatomy dissection halls during and post-COVID-19 pandemic.

From time immemorial, cadaveric dissection has been commonly employed as a method of practical teaching and learning for anatomical education globally. Conventionally, cadaveric dissection has been embraced and widely accepted as the best fit for comprehensive and gross teaching in anatomy education, thus placing an undue rise in cadavers' demands. The emergence of the new coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has posed significant effects on medical education with substantial impacts on anatomy education, as seen in the shift from classroom to virtual learning. An essential area of anatomy education and training requiring immediate consideration is the position of cadaveric dissection in a post-COVID-19 era, which entails the safety of cadavers from possible SARS-CoV-2 infection before their use. This article explores the place of cadaveric dissection in post-COVID-19 anatomy education.

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is caused by a beta-coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that affects the lower respiratory tract and appears as pneumonia in humans. COVID-19 became apparent in December 2019 in Wuhan City of China, and has propagated profusely globally. Despite stringent global quarantine and containment drives, the incidence of COVID-19 keeps soaring high. Measures to minimize human-to-human transmission have been implemented to control the pandemic. However, special efforts to reduce transmission via efficient public health communications and dissemination of risks should be applied in susceptible populations including children, health care providers, and the elderly. In response to this global pandemic, this article summarizes proven strategies that could be employed to combat the COVID-19 disease outbreak, taking a cue from lessons learned from the Ebola virus disease response.

La maladie à coronavirus (COVID-19) est causée par un bêta-coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) qui affecte les voies respiratoires inférieures et se présente sous forme de pneumonie chez l'homme. La COVID-19 est apparue en décembre 2019 dans la ville chinoise de Wuhan, et s'est propagée à grande échelle dans le monde entier. Malgré des mesures de quarantaine et de confinement rigoureuses, l'incidence de COVID-19 continue de grimper en flèche. Des mesures visant à minimiser la transmission interhumaine ont été mises en œuvre pour contrôler la pandémie. Toutefois, des efforts particuliers pour réduire la transmission par le biais de communications efficaces en matière de santé publique et de diffusion des risques doivent être déployés dans les populations sensibles, notamment les enfants, les prestataires de soins de santé et les personnes âgées. En réponse à cette pandémie mondiale, cet article résume les stratégies éprouvées qui pourraient être employées pour combattre l'épidémie de maladie COVID-19, en s'inspirant des leçons tirées de la réponse à la maladie du virus Ebola.
