Clinical management of severe acute respiratory infection (SARI) when COVID-19 disease is suspected 21 Apr, 2020

The World Health Organization published this Interim Guide for clinicians involved in the care of adult, pregnant, and pediatric patients with or at risk for severe acute respiratory infection (SARI) when infection with the COVID-19 virus is suspected. Considerations for pediatric patients and pregnant women are highlighted throughout the text. It is not meant to replace clinical judgment or specialist consultation but rather to strengthen clinical management of these patients and to provide up-to-date guidance. Best practices for infection prevention and control (IPC), triage and optimized supportive care are included.
