What is your role?
Community pharmacies in SARS-CoV-2 (formerly know as 2019-nCoV) outbreak-affected and unaffected countries are often the first point of contact with the health system for those with concerns or in need of information and reliable advice. Their responsibilities include stocking appropriate products and promoting disease prevention. Hospital pharmacies in outbreak-affected and unaffected countries have an important role in in-hospital infection control as well as patient care and support. Pharmacists may also have roles in clinical laboratories.
