Abstract: This article attempts to illustrate the challenges of medical practice during the COVID-19 pandemic. We address and discuss patient and medical worker’s safety, access to healthcare, standard of care and the emerging role of telemedicine, from both, medical and legal perspectives.
We conclude that attention should be paid to problems related to allocation of scarce resources, the moral dilemma on who to treat, and pressing legal considerations regarding the medical practice during the pandemic and to burden and stress of the medical workers.
Keywords: legal challenges, covid 19, healthcare coverage, ethics.
