Abstract
We highlight the importance of effective triage in the time of the pandemic. A 46-year-old male patient applied to the emergency room with fever, cough for 4 days, respiratory distress for 2 days, and myalgia. There was no suspected contact history up to 14 days before the onset of symptoms. Vital signs and laboratory values other than troponin were normal. Troponin -I values were 0.281, 0.252, 0.566 ng/ml(<0.0262ng / ml), respectively. In computed tomography, subpleural millimetric focal slightly ground glass densities were selected in the right apical posterior section in the thorax. In the swab sample (PCR), covid-19 was considered negative. He was admitted to the cardiology service. A stent was placed in the patient who underwent angiography on the 5th day of hospitalization. There are nonspecific symptoms that can be seen in many diseases, and effective triage should be given importance.

Key words: Pandemic,myocardial infarction,triage
