FRANCE: We have written this protocol for our ambulances, specific for Coronavirus operations:

Main criterias :

- Specific PPE , protocol to dress and undress,

- As little possible contact between  rescuers and patients  

- Driver not at all in contact with the victim contact if possible

- If we have information or not about Coronavirus suspicion at the ambulance departure; we use dedicated ambulance for not urgent operation with Coronavirus

- Disinfection of all materials/ambulance at the end of the operation.
