International Perspective On The Pediatric Covid Experience

On March 31, 2020, the International Relations Committee of the American Thoracic Society Pediatric Assembly recorded an online podcast, during which pediatric pulmonologists worldwide shared their experience on the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in children. The aim was not to share centralized information about pediatric patient numbers or treatment protocols, which is available through many international epidemiology and health care websites; but to share personal experience in organizing the pediatric care in different international health care settings, protecting healthcare workers, and isolation practices. The 2019 novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) is endangering human health worldwide, and the novelty of the infection and uncertainty of the prognosis disable many physicians from being confident in treating their patients. Scarcity of pediatric cases and current literature on the topic, as well as the absence of evidence-based guidelines, necessitate international share of experience and personal communication.
