We are in uncharted territory as a South African surgical community. The COVID-19 outbreak has been declared a global pandemic by the WHO and our South African President has appropriately responded by declaring a “national state of disaster” in order to activate national procedures.
COVID-19 is a rapidly expanding global challenge, placing a huge burden on healthcare systems. There is no evidence to inform the management of surgical patients with COVID-19 infection. Capturing real-world data and sharing international experience will support the management of this complex group of patients, improving their clinical care.
It is with great sadness that we report the death of our friend and colleague, Dr Timothy Thulo. Dr. Thulo will be missed by all.
