Algorithm for drug treatment for patients with COVID-19

At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in Connecticut, Yale School of Medicine (YSM) Department of Internal Medicine pulled together a group of experts across many specialties to create a treatment algorithm for patients diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2, or COVID-19.

Led by infectious disease physicians, the COVID-19 treatment team created a treatment plan for non-severe and severe disease for use across Yale New Haven Health. Additionally, the updated algorithm includes a list of recommended medications, along with rationale for use, notable adverse reactions, and other considerations.

“Since this is a new virus, we created this plan based on accessible information, clinical observations and personal communications with other experts … We are sharing our algorithm now in hopes to help others with patient care.”

Maricar Malinis, MD, FACP, FIDSA, FAST Associate Professor of Medicine
