Abstract

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV2) and the disease it causes, coronavirus disease 2019(COVID-19), are causing a rapid and tragic health emergencyworldwide [1,2]. Italy was the first European country toexperience a virus outbreak, starting on 21 February 2020. Itresulted in a national quarantine, and the official lockdown ofthe country’s non-essentialbusinesses and services began on 9 March 2020. Althoughseveral reports are available in the literature providingrecommendations for the reorganization of clinical andsurgical activities [3–7], to our knowledge, no data areavailable on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemicon the outcomes of other medical conditions.For this reason, we aimed to evaluate the urologicalcomponent of emergency department activities during theCOVID-19 pandemic, assessing the requests for urgenturological consultations in a network of academic and nonacademic hospitals in Italy.
