List of healthcare systems forced to ration care for COVID-19 patients during the COVID-19 pandemic

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


This list of healthcare systems forced to ration care for COVID-19 patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, displayed in chronological order, includes a list of areas where the spread of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has overwhelmed healthcare infrastructures, exceeding healthcare system capacity and requiring the use of triage in order to ration care for COVID-19 patients, such as not accepting certain patients or not providing certain care such as access to ventilators. Many governments and members of civil society took measures that aimed to flatten the curve, either by limiting spread or by increasing healthcare system capacity, and to thereby prevent such an outcome.
