The severe situation of the spread of novel coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19) poses a huge challenge to the admission and management of patients undergoing selective thoracic surgery. In order to ensure that patients can receive surgical treatment in time, and we can effectively prevent the outbreak and spread of the disease in the surgical department, the department should comb the relevant content from multiple aspects in accordance with the specific situation. It is necessary to adopt a new admission process of patients undergoing selective surgery and COVID-19 investigation process for patients and their families during the epidemics. We should improve the companion and suspected patient management system during the epidemic. Patients who are planning to undergo surgery need to be strictly checked for COVID-19 infection before surgery. The treatment and management strategies of patients undergoing thoracic surgery in our department are summarized in this paper.
