The year 2020 will be remembered around the world for the coronavirus pandemic. The better known coronavirus disease COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by a type of coronavirus that is transmitted between individuals through the droplets produced by infected people when they exhale, cough or sneeze, or by touching a contaminated surface and then touching their eyes the nose or mouth. The pandemic has activated all those measures that provide for a state of emergency with consequent remodeling of health facilities in cases of urgency that cannot be deferred.
METHODS: In this work, a path within a public or private medical facility was highlighted, using individual protective devices for the patient, establishing behaviors that can reduce the spread of the virus.
RESULTS: The COVID-19 path has allowed the health personnel and the staff of the study to be able to work in peace as there is the perception of the total containment of the spread of the virus.
CONCLUSIONS: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a coronavirus type transmitted through droplets produced by infected people when they cough, sneeze or exhale. Our proposal in dictating the sequence and types of protective devices to be worn by patients minimizes the contagion between patients in a professional healthcare office and is applicable for any type of infectious emergency.
