Abstract

Italy was the first Western country hit by the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, with over 246,000 documented cases and more than 35,000 deaths related to the infection as of July 26, 2020. The first documented case in Italy was reported on February 18, 2020, introducing a rapid sequence of events. A few towns near Milan and in Veneto were locked down soon thereafter. Finally, the entire country was locked down on March 9, 2020, with a national quarantine, which has severely limited the movement of the entire population except for documented work and health circumstances. Since then, many hospitals have restrained non-emergency admissions and ambulatory services, particularly for non-oncologic patients. Despite many medical and scientific reports on the current pandemic, little is known on the effect and magnitude of this health emergency on the care of patients with breast cancer.
