This can be improved by informing the community of known areas where an infected individual has been, and asking those that may have been in the specified area at the approximate timeframe to self-quarantine and monitor symptoms
This can be improved by creating a network of hospitals, especially those in areas with a greater volume of patients infected with COVID, to share best practices on how they are triaging and treating patients while minimizing exposure to healthcare providers and also minimizing exposure to patients not infected with COVID.
This can be improved by creating a survey that anyone in the community is encouraged to take to try to determine if symptoms are more likely to be COVID, the Flu, or a common cold. The survey can be anonymous, and can be hosted on the hospital's website (and/or other sites like WHO).
Creating a system that allows the ease of rescheduling elective surgeries or routine health appointments in order to free up much-needed resources at hospitals during times of medical crises. Hospitals will indicate if they need to free up beds/doctors, and through negotiated agreements with insurance companies, incentives can be given to patients who do decide to reschedule their routine appointments.
