World Health Organisation (WHO)
This document is intended for doctors taking care of hospitalised adult and paediatric patients with severe acute respiratory infection (SARI) when a nCoV infection is suspected.
It is not meant to replace clinical judgment or specialist consultation but rather to strengthen clinical management of these patients and provide to up-to-date guidance.
Best practices for SARI including IPC and optimised supportive care for severely ill patients are essential.
