COVID-19-induced sarcopenia and physical deconditioning may require reassessment of surgical risk for patients with cancer


The long-term physiological consequences of SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome
coronavirus) infection are not known. The ability of COVID-19 to cause chronic illness, sarcopenia, and physical deconditioning may be underestimated and go beyond the anticipated respiratory sequelae. Myalgia, lethargy, and anorexia are common symptoms even in mild to moderate cases and have the potential to exacerbate frailty. How this impacts on risk-stratification for patients requiring surgery for time-critical conditions, such as malignancy,
requires further urgent investigation.

Cancer Care Disparities during the COVID-19 Pandemic: COVID-19 and Cancer Outcomes Study


Patients with cancer, both active and previously treated, may be at higher risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19 compared to the general population (Dai et al., 2020; Bakouny et al., 2020; Westblade et al., 2020). Oncologists and health care systems have adapted the delivery of cancer care to mitigate the increased risk of morbidity and mortality from COVID-19
among oncology patients (U¨ r€un et al., 2020). However, the ways in which the pandemic has incited changes in multidisciplinary cancer care remain poorly defined with minimal prospective data. In this multicenter, prospective cohort study of 2,365 outpatients receiving cancer care during the pandemic, we detail significant disruptions to routine cancer care and racial disparities in care disruption and COVID-19 outcomes.

Summary of international recommendations in 23 languages for patients with cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic


Patients with cancer are at high risk for serious illness and death from COVID-19. The pandemic has altered the routine for oncology patients. Their lives depend on their ability to receive medical care, but every visit to a health-care facility exposes them to the risk of contracting the virus; therefore, concerns about getting infected might interfere with their continuity of care. Does oncology treatment outweigh the risk of infection? The psychological pressure of uncertainty for patients with cancer is particularly high. In this difficult phase, these patients need guidance and support.

Perceived Care andWell-being of Patients With Cancer and Matched Norm Participants in the COVID-19 Crisis Results of a Survey of Participants in the Dutch PROFILES Registry


The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has affected cancer care worldwide. In the Netherlands, a lockdown was introduced on March 23, 2020. Planned cancer surgical procedures and systemic treatmentswere delayed or stopped. The Netherlands Cancer Registry reported a 25% decrease in the absolute number of cancer diagnoses. Furthermore, to prevent the potential risk of an infection, patients with cancer were advised to not visit the hospital unless strictly needed.
