  1. Health care professionals should be flexible in their professional behaviour in face of the significant epidemic.
  2. Readiness to work outside the comfort zone of clinical practice in the increasingly likely scenario of widespread community transmission of COVID-19.
  3. Primary and secondary care undergoes extreme stress during significant epidemic state. This leads "inevitable exacerbation of staff shortages due to sickness or caring responsibilities" and hence represents a challenging scenario for the profession.
  4. It may include working in unfamiliar circumstances or surroundings or clinical areas outside of their usual practice for the benefit of patients and the entire population.
  5. Every patient entering the hospital should be considered as COVID positive and health care professionals should wear mask all the time.
  6. Encourage tele or video conferencing or consultations as far as possible.
  7. Inform through SMS all the patients to not visit the hospital/clinic if they have cough or fever. They should only do so after fixing an appointment.
  8. All patients with cough and fever entering the hospital should be immediately provided with a surgical mask at the reception, and given priority getting lab or imaging tests. They should not be made to wait in queues.
  9. All reusable equipment stethoscopes, BP instruments etc. should be frequently sanitised.
  10. Minimise paper work as much as possible.
  11. Learn the correct method of using and disposing surgical masks.
  12. Read the updated MoH guidelines every day.
