ABSTRACT
The spread of the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic throughout the world has persisted for over a year now [1]. Multiple hospitals in several countries do not have any free beds available and the health care providers are facing burn-out and fatigue. Some hospital centres such as in Lombardy, Italy even became an epicentre of infections [2]. We sought to briefly describe the changes seen and reported in literature by several cardiology departments from various regions across the world.
