Novel coronavirus pneumonia (corona virus disease 2019, [COVID-19]) is a novel respiratory infectious disease that has rapidly spread in many countries or regions around the world [1, 2, 3] . With the approval of the State Council, COVID-19 was included in the category B infectious diseases under the Law of the People’s People’s Republic of China on the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases, and the preventive and control measures for category A infectious diseases were adopted. Given the severity of the COVID-19 epidemic, the wide spread of transmission, and the human-to-human transmission, some patients with musculoskeletal disorders visiting hospitals and health care
workers engaged in medical shockwave technology are at potential risk of COVID-19 infection. The 2022 Chinese expert consensus statement on the Management of Musculoskeletal Disease Extracorporeal Shock Wave during the Prevention and Control of Novel Coronavirus Epidemic is formulated..
