Since the initial reports surfaced of a novel coronavirus causing illness and loss of life in Wuhan, China, COVID-19 has rapidly spread across the globe, infecting millions and leaving hundreds and thousands dead. As hospitals cope with the influx of patients with COVID-19, new challenges have arisen as health-care systems care for patients with COVID-19 while still providing essential emergency care for patients with acute strokes and acute myocardial infarction. Adding to this complex scenario are new reports that patients with COVID-19 are at increased risk of thromboembolic complications including strokes.
