Abstract

The Covid-19 pandemic has propagated rapidly in a short period of time with considerable morbidity and mortality rates. The majority of health services have been disrupted by shortages, which have compromised the quality of care provided in many hospital facilities. Infected symptomatic individuals, mainly present respiratory system failure, however, other systems may also become affected. With the aim of facilitating the standardization of care we propose two different triage models, Covid-19 Triage-1 and Covid-19 Triage-2, to be used outside and inside a hospital setting, respectively. It is expected that the wider application of these triages will allow a better evaluation of patients` clinical status and their response to therapeutic interventions, along with an optimal use of the available health resources. In addition, they may be useful tools for the comparison of data and the design of future studies.
