Clinical mitigation encompasses strategies to ensure adequate provision of care for mildly to moderately ill COVID-19 patients, and delivery of other non-COVID-19 essential health services during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Maintaining  Essential Services : As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, health systems globally are being overwhelmed. Healthcare services are being compromised in order to meet the demands of caring for COVID-19 patients.
