Abstract

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease which has rapidly evolved into a pandemic. Though it has affected all disciplines of medical sciences but it has some serious implications pertaining to cardiovascular sciences which have presented unique challenges in front of cardiac surgeons in particular. To flatten the curve of this pandemic, routine cardiac surgeries are being deferred indefinitely resulting in the pool of sick cardiac patients rising day by day. A different perspective is presented on this global catastrophe from the viewpoint of a cardiac surgeon.
