Abstract

Prespective On Primary Care Approach to Covid-19

Both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
announced a COVID-19 pandemic and provided
information to healthcare systems on how best to prepare
for such pandemic. Although the flow of information is
overwhelming, the goal of this short communication is to
offer primary care clinics (PC) or medical offices located in
community’s specific judgment on how PCs should engage
to prepare to meet COVID-19 challenges. These
recommendations are based on the authors analysis of
the consequences of this pandemic and we believe that
more similar communications need to be published in
order to understand the complexity of implementing
preparedness strategies that is needed for PCs around the
world. We also recognize that any such recommendations
must be based on numerous untestable assumptions and
any of these can reasonably be challenged, we propose
specific actions and priorities for community PC
preparedness issues more operationally useful. Although,
hospitals and other healthcare facilities need to also
urgently prepare, this commentary pertains to PC.
