Bonfire Night Health & Safety?

(left) Plymouth Healthcare Science student Nathalie Dinar puts on the Ebola Treatment Centre's PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) helped by Dr. Christopher Logue from the Novel and Dangerous Pathogens Training Group at Public Health England (PHE) at Porton Down. Christopher called in between his work for PHE in Sierra Leone to lecture on our third year Public Health Infection Science module. Students on this module will visit PHE at Porton Down soon to see at first hand how infectious disease threats are managed.

Students also learnt to correctly remove surgical gloves after handling a simulated contagious substance (below).
