Key Findings
· The Intubation box was originally invented by Dr. Lai Hsien-yung, an anesthesiologist in Taiwan. · The main function of the intubation box is intended to prevent exposure of care providers to COVID-19 from aerosol droplets during intubation. · The intubation box concept emerged during the pandemic to address the challenge of adequate supply of PPEs in resource limited settings in particular but presents limitations and poses significant safety risk to the patient. · limitations include increased incubation time, discomfort from restricted hand movements for the intubation procedure, reduced first-pass intubation rates, limitation for certain body habitus and possible injury to patient · With regards to aerosol exposure, intubation boxes have been reported to increase rather than decrease airborne particle exposure.

Key Findings
Systematic reviews indicate there is a growing evidence in support of a correlation between mask use and lowered risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection
Case-control and observational studies have demonstrated a positive effect on community transmission rates
Masks provide the greatest community impact when implemented early, adherence is high and when combined with social distancing and hand hygiene
Individual protection is largely impacted by mask material and fit
Mask use is considered an adjunct to, rather than a replacement for, other non-pharmaceutical public health measures (social distancing, hand-washing)
