Palliative care patients might be at an increased risk of acquiring the infection due to their poor clinical status. Every care is been taken by the hospital authorities to prevent the spread of infection among healthcare workers and other patients. Somehow, the acute psychological impact of this disease on non-COVID emergency patients is not often addressed. Here, we discuss a scenario that emphasizes the stress an operated cancer patient was undergoing because of this pandemic. The psychological impact of this pandemic cannot be understated. We need measures like an interdisciplinary approach to counsel patients and their relatives in the perspective of COVID-19 at an early stage itself.
