Latin American Physician Survey on COVID-19

This is a large scale physician study in Latin American covering over 2200 doctors in 13 countries. showing data on their evaluation of public initiatives, hospital infrastructure, citizen awareness, patient profiles and future outlook. It provides a number of insights including evidence of a younger critical patient profile in Latin America than what is commonly reported for Europe and also a high proportion of patients with previous conditions (61%) thus providing useful data that can be used for decision makers to assess actions for reducing the death toll of the pandemic. The validity of the doctor opinions on effectiveness of public initiatives was validated by a post-survey check of the growth of the mortality rates 7 days after closing the survey. Those 5 countries which had a 90% or more support of the implemented policies by the medical community (namely Argentina, Costa Rica, Panama, Peru and Uruguay) achieved an average growth of less than half the one checked by the other 8 countries, based on WHO reported data.
