English term or phrase: Non-Pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs)
Definition from Climson University:
As they relate to COVID-19, the CDC defines non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) as actions, apart from getting vaccinated and taking medicine, that people and communities can take to help slow the spread of illnesses like pandemic influenza (flu). NPIs are also known as community mitigation strategies. When a new flu virus spreads among people, causing illness worldwide, it is called pandemic flu. Because a pandemic flu virus is new, the human population has little or no immunity against it. This allows the virus to spread quickly from person to person worldwide. NPIs are among the best ways of controlling pandemic flu when vaccines are not yet available.

Example sentence(s):
  • The outbreak containment strategies in China based on non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) appear to be effective, but quantitative research is still needed to assess the efficacy of NPIs and their timings. Using epidemiological and anonymised human movement data, here we develop a modelling framework that uses daily travel networks to simulate different outbreak and intervention scenarios across China. Nature
  • Non-pharmaceutical interventions for pandemic influenza, national and community measures. National Center for Biotechnology Info.
  • Non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) and virus testing are melded in the effort to flatten the curve, thus reducing the number of new cases occurring daily and offering healthcare systems and public authorities the time to prepare for the coming wave of infections. However, given the resulting instability of the social and economic situation, both federal and state governments are chafing to return to normalcy as soon as possible. News Medical

Definition from
Për të ngadalësuar dhe kufizuar përhapjen e COVID-19, shumë vende europiane kanë vënë në zbatim disa ndërhyrje jo-farmaceutike (psh. izolimi i të infektuarve, mbyllja e shkollave dhe universiteteve, ndalimi i grumbullimeve masive, etj.)

Example sentence(s):
  • Studimi në fjalë quhet "Impact of non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) to reduce COVID- 19 mortality and healthcare demand" ("Ndikimi i ndërhyrjeve jo-farmaceutike (NPI) për të zvogëluar vdekshmërinë nga Covid-19 dhe kërkesën e kujdesit shëndetësor"). -  
  • FAKTE PËR COVID-19 • COVID-19 • Ndërhyrjet jo-farmaceutike (NJF-të) -  
  • “Mësimi për pandeminë e koronavirusit në vitin 2020 është që, për të zvogëluar vdekjet e përgjithshme, NPI-të [ndërhyrjet jo-farmaceutike] duhet të mbahen për më gjatë se disa javë. -  

Në bazë të rregullave të drejtshkrimit "jofarmaceutike" duhet të shkruhet pa vizë ndarëse. Preferoj të përdor akronimin e shqipëruar përderisa është një term që nuk përdoret ende gjerësisht.
