Triage posts

Triage posts are specifically designed centers to examine patients who may be infected with COVID-19. They do this after referral by a doctor. These patients do not have to go to a GP's waiting room or to a hospital emergency room where they can infect others. If necessary, the triage center will then refer them to the hospital for hospitalization. The centers are an initiative of doctors and governments and are part of primary care.

Each triage center is supervised by a medical officer who guarantees the daily functioning of the center. In addition, there are medical coordinators who are responsible for the organization, planning, distribution of doctors, etc.
