Abstract

We are living very difficult times. The pandemic caused by SARS‐CoV‐2 (COVID‐19) is rapidly affecting the delivery of care for children with cancer around the world. We have written this commentary to facilitate the dissemination of helpful information and useful links, and to place in perspective what we do and do not know about the COVID‐19 pandemic and its impact in the practice of paediatric oncology. Generally speaking, the impact that this virus may have on the paediatric population, and the management of children with cancer, remains unclear and poorly documented. The next two sections outline what has been published or communicated via academic websites, both in children and adults with cancer.
