Since the initial report of the SARS-CoV-2 virus out?break in the Hubei province of China in late December 2019, the virus has spread across the world leading to over 1 765 000 cases of COVID-19 reported worldwide complicated by 108 000 deaths up to April 11, 2020 [1].  Lebanon has declared its first COVID-19 case on February 21, 2020, and since then the total number of positive cases has risen to reach 619 cases and 20 deaths (as of April 11, 2020) [2]. The speed of spread of the virus in 210 countries with no pre-existing scientific data coupled with media cov?erage [3] drove Hôtel-Dieu de France Medical Center (HDFMC) of the Saint-Joseph University (USJ) to has?ten its organizational procedures and move to the front?lines to face the COVID-19.
