Resuming endoscopy during COVID-19 pandemic: ESGE, WEO and WGO Joint Cascade Guideline for Resource Limited Settings
G. Antonelli, J.G. Karstensen, P. Bhat, et al.

Using a previously validated methodology, the authors have adapted resource sensitive recommendations to resource limited settings, with particular regard to PPE, limited infrastructure, staff shortage and triage procedures.
