|Surgery COVID Asymptomatic Patient Covid-19 Preventive Measures||Other: global survey|
With new evidence on the role of asymptomatic patients in spreading the disease during the Covid-19 pandemic, symptom driven guidelines for testing, hospital allocation and personal protective equipment (PPE) use do not seem appropriate to limit in-hospital transmission. At time when lockdowns are in place in most countries, hospitals can become the new source of infection.
Guidelines are very variable depending on local policies and availability of medical supplies, resulting in most hospitals taking different preventive measures.
