Depypere et al. report on a survey among members of the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons (ESTS) regarding the impact of coronarvirus disease 2019 on thoracic oncology surgery. They recorded an almost universal impact on surgical practice regardless of the country and the numbers of COVID-19 infected patients. Furthermore, there was no consensus regarding surgical priorities in lung cancer patients, which represents the need of further guideline work within this area.
