Clinical Toolkit

  • The most common signs and symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Less common symptoms include nausea, muscle ache, confusion, headache, and sore throat.

  • Preexisting comorbid conditions that increase the likelihood of severe illness with COVID-19 include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, hypertension, cancer, and obesity.

  • It is estimated that roughly 15% of people infected with the new coronavirus will develop severe disease requiring hospitalization, and another 5% will become critically ill.

Clinical Care Toolkit Introduction

The number of deaths related to complications from COVID-19 has already exceeded 2,000 Americans per day and this number is expected to rise. As COVID-19 is a novel virus, effective treatments and vaccines that reduce mortality and decrease healthcare utilization have not been developed yet and are urgently needed. Clinicians require up-to-date resources on current recommendations and clinical trial data on emerging vaccines and treatments to improve clinical outcomes during the COVID-19 pandemic. This Clinical Care Toolkit aims to provide clinicians with the latest information on the prevention, presentation, and management of COVID-19.
