A group of dermatologists from West China Hospital of Sichuan University detailed some of the measures they took in attempting to treat patients in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Yusha Chen, MD, of the department of dermatology at West China Hospital of Sichuan University, and colleagues wrote that the number of dermatology clinics was cut in half, as a starting point. When possible, telemedicine visits were conducted, and patients who had appointments that could be postponed were asked to do so.
