The COVID-19 or disease caused by the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, in its transmission does not distinguish age, and the pediatric population may also be affected. Given the current outbreak of the pandemic in our country, there have been several concerns that have been generated among patients and their families who suffer from a childhood rheumatic disease and that can be classified as “at risk” in a special way.


To reflect on the recommendations given to patients with rheumatism due to the SARS-Cov-2 coronavirus pandemic and to offer our own recommendations to Cuban pediatric patients with rheumatic disease already appropriate to our social context.


Documentary review. Search engines (Google academic and SciELO-Scientific Electronic Library Online) were used, and scientific evidence, preprints and narrative reviews were analyzed, recommendations based on them were made.


The recommendations given by the authors based on the review carried out have been adapted to the social context of the Cuban pediatric patient with rheumatic disease. Thus, reference has also been made to measures taken by our government and the different ministries, to official information sites, which are understood and have validity for Cuban citizens. Any handling, measure or suggestion before the COVID-19 must be personalized to each patient and group of patients in question, by region, country, province, according to their own environment.
