The COVID-19 Virtual Ward is for patients suspected to be suffering from or diagnosed with coronavirus. By answering a few questions and recording a few measurements twice a day – cough, wellness, breathing, pulse, temperature and oxygen levels (using an oximeter) – we use the new NHS scoring algorithm to assist patients being cared for remotely by their clinical team. This can be done with patients in both the community and care homes (see Example of Best Practice section in the COVID Virtual Ward Clinician App course).
