Acute stroke care during the COVID-19 pandemic in Slovakia

Takeaway

  • While there was a decrease in the number of stroke admissions in Slovakia during the COVID-19 outbreak, there was a similar quality of care for acute stroke.

Why this matters

    Country-level detailed data on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the number of people hospitalized with stroke is limited. Using a national mandatory registry, this report indicates that there was no change in the quality of care received during the initial period of the pandemic.
