About CovidSurg Cohort Study

Patients diagnosed with COVID-19 who need surgery are a challenging group. Capturing real-world data and sharing international experience about the management of surgical patients during this pandemic will inform clinical decision making. CovidSurg Cohort Study is an international multi-centric cohort study aiming to assess the outcomes of surgery in patients with SARS-CoV2 infection.

Patients meeting the following inclusion criteria can be included in CovidSurg:

  • Patients undergoing ANY type of surgery in an operating theatre, this includes obstetrics.


  • Either before or after surgery: (i) lab test confirmed SARS-CoV2 infection or (ii) clinical diagnosis of COVID-19 (no test performed).
