Figure 2: PATIENT FLOW ALGORITHM. Algorithm depicting patient flow once the patient arrives in an emergency with neurological complaints. The initial screening in the emergency was largely based on a history of recent respiratory illness – fever, sore throat, running nose, recurrent sneezing, difficulty breathing, pneumonia, severe acute respiratory illness in the past 14 days. The second triage included other parameters like – anosmia, loss of taste, diarrhea, anorexia, fatigue, myalgias, conjunctivitis, acute confusion, any family member or close contact with the above symptoms in the past 14 days, history of travel to a hot spot (personal or of a close contact) in the past 14 days, residence in community hot spots irrespective of influenza-like illness (ILI) symptoms
