A world wide pandemic of COVID 19 has been affected by the global health system of the majority of the world. The significant burden of the pandemic results in severe damage to several steps of health supply. Although significant health authorities and surgical societies gave the rapid response to this world wide outbreak, major concerns emerge for emergency and oncological cases which could be life-threatening on this sophisticated chaotic crisis environment. Local precautions should be considered on this outbreak when every country and geographical region may manage its resources with severe limitations. In this review, we try to collect recommendations about the triage of general surgical cancer care which are emphasized by the Turkish surgical community and world oncological societies up to date.
