With over 350,000 total confirmed cases so far, the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is on every clinician’s mind. With information evolving rapidly, questions and uncertainties are sure to arise.
While much about the virus and disease remain unknown, it is essential that we pool together the knowledge we have to respond effectively to this novel threat.
