In December 2019, it was reported the outbreak of an acute respiratory infection of unknown etiology, in the city of Wuhan, China, whose cause was shortly after attributed to a new virus called SARS-CoV-2. In March 2020 the disease caused by this virus, COVID-19, was declared a pandemic by the WHO. As a consequence, it was recommended to restrict surgical interventions, limiting them to those that are priorities and the ones that should not be deferred since can be compromised the health of the patient. International agencies and scientific societies have issued recommendations for the health care and surgical activities. It is needed to suit them to the social and geographical context where the health activity is developed in Cuba. This is the reason to conform recommendations adapted to the conditions of pediatric medical institutions in our country, with the aim of contributing to organize the emergency surgical care to pediatric patients positive or suspected of having COVID-19, while accomplishing the safety requirements for the patient and the health personnel in charge.
