The current COVID-19 pandemic has a huge impact on society and economy and represents one of the biggest challenges for healthcare systems all over the world. Reports from health-care-institutions in different countries show a variety of crisis exit strategies. Although experiences in handling of the pandemic have accumulated over the last 7 months, it is clear that measures to prevent a collapse of the health-care-systems have to be adapted to local political and socioeconomic structures. The aim of this review is to give insight in crisis exit strategies in Switzerland, highlighting the role and impact of COVID-19 in the field of cardiac surgery.
