In preparation for the COVID-19 pandemic, simulation came in handy in aiding health-care facilities around the world to establish strategies to manage its personnel, space, and processes through experiential learning. Simulation bloomed during the epidemic due to its flexibility and capacity to train large number of health-care professionals at different levels in a timely manner while maintaining high safety profile.
