Humanity is experiencing the worst global disaster since the Second World War. In deed, Covid19 has affected more than 8,500,000 patients and more than 450,000 have died worldwide. Cardiac surgeons have been able to adapt to the situation by adopting new methods such as remote consultations and telemedicine. This brief communication summarizes the current situation and anticipates the resumption of the elective activity.
