An Editorial on Surgery in COVID Times in Tertiary Care

Yashwant Singh Rathore*

The novel ‘COVID- 19’ infection spread at a rapid pace globally and disrupted the normal functioning of the human beings. The health care specialists need to adapt to the situation to treat the patients with ‘COVID-19’ as well as avoid long delays in the treatment of ‘non-COVID’ patients. The delay in treatment and surgeries for debilitating benign and malignant diseases in ‘non- COVID’ patients might lead to more harm to a patient than COVID itself. The demands need to be met keeping in mind the limited resources in the hospital. India has been one of the worst hit countries by the ‘COVID-19’pandemic. There were still, 67,708 new cases as on 15th October, 2020. Although the number of cases might be declining, the absolute number is still quite high. The ‘COVID-19 ‘virus is now omnipresent and we should find ways to live with the virus with adequate precautions rather locking down the routine services.
