An article in Health Care Science provides an in-depth analysis of the changes made to the diagnosis and treatment protocol for COVID-19 in China over the course of the pandemic.
The authors compare and summarize each of the 10 versions of the protocol issued by the National Health Commission of China over 3 years, highlighting the evolving scientific evidence and disease situation that informed these changes.
The summary provides valuable insights into the adaptive healthcare management and response to COVID-19 in China, which can inform the global response to the pandemic.
“Clinical management of emerging diseases requires constant adaptation. This review highlights China’s evidence-based approach to refining diagnosis, treatment, and care protocols over time, demonstrating how these changes have effectively combated the challenges of COVID-19,” said co–corresponding author You Wu, PhD, of Tsinghua University.
