"The COVID-19 McMaster Survival Guide is a concise, yet comprehensive, easy to read & navigate, practical manual relating to the clinical aspects, diagnostic approach, prevention and management of COVID-19 infection and its disease spectrum. It demonstrates best practice and best evidence available at the time of publication. This article will prove to be beneficial as a quick reference for internists, subspecialists, hospitalists, medical learners (students/residents), allied health and other medical professionals in both the hospital and outpatient setting to help with patient management. We have also included information on mental health, pregnancy and palliative care in COVID 19 patients, which is not always found in all guides. Most of the principles in the guide are universal depending on the medical resources available. Moreover, there are also several useful links for videos, relevant articles and PDFs from authentic sources. The guide is based on the understanding that the situation with COVID-19 is evolving on a day-to-day basis and for that reason, it will be updated regularly by the authors. The Guide is a collective effort by a specialist in Internal Medicine, Infectious Disease, Critical Care and a medical graduate."
