Cancer guidelines
Cancer guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic is an article published by Talha Khan Burki on The
Lancet on April 02, 2020 This article is a guide to cancer. It introduces recommendations for staffing,
clinical preparation, infection prevention and control, and patient scheduling due to the outbreak of
COVID-19 and the shortage of resources in many hospitals. Through the article, because of the outbreak
of COVID-19, physicians must evaluate whether the cancer treatment plan should be initiated or
delayed. Cancer refers to a disease in which abnormal cells divide and invade nearby tissues without
control. Cancer cells can also spread to other parts of the body through the blood and lymphatic
systems. Carcinoma is cancer that starts in the skin or tissues or tissues covering internal organs.
I chose this article because my grandpa died of cancer, so I will pay attention to many articles about
cancer. And now COVID-19 is erupting all over the world, and my grandma lives in Wuhan, China. There
are friends and family around me who are sick because of COVID-19, so these articles are a good guide
for me.
The Lancet is one of the oldest and most respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world and one
of the most important journals in the medical community. The articles published above are strictly
selected, so this shows the rigor and authority of the article. The sources of all materials in the article
are credible and authoritative. The article draws on the cancer care guidelines published by Oncology
societies and national authorities and the information and materials on the official website of the
European Society for Medical Oncology. But I didn't find any information about the author Talha Khan
Burki, which reduced the credibility. However, it also can be confirmed from the above website
background and data sources that this is a formal and credible medical news.
