Severe acute respiratory syndrome 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the first major pandemic our healthcare system has faced in more than 100 years. The pandemic has resulted in an explosion of knowledge, which has been evolving rapidly over many dimensions, such as symptomology, transmissibility, clinical manifestations, treatment, and prevention. In addition, contradictory information, often influenced by political overtones, has been circulating within the scientific and public health communities about the disease, its treatments, and safety precautions.
The COVID-19 Handbook provides a fact-based approach to help practitioners address multiple aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic, from prevention to diagnosis to treatment. Topics include understanding SARS-CoV-2, clinical presentation in special populations, potential therapeutics, the effect on healthcare workers, mental health concerns in healthcare providers, regulatory and compliance issues, and the future of healthcare in a post-COVID world.
