Triage and assessment of severity of illness for suspected/confirmed COVID-19 (adults)

COVID-19 generally presents as self-limited influenza-like illness but can progress to severe lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI), multiorgan failure and death in 2-3% of patients. Older age and underlying comorbidities are risk factors for severity. Cases requiring hospitalization
should be managed in special units designated for COVID-19 care.
This document aims to help clinicians assess severity of illness on presentation and guide the
decision to hospitalize.
