    Cancer day surgery should be done now. The patient is in and out the same day. So no hospital bed is used leaving them for COVID-19 patients. Doing day surgeries now will reduce the back log for cancer surgeries.

    This is very helpful information. Are all breast cancer biopsies being tested for HER2 before this decision is taken. Triple negative can present as lower risk initially but grow quickly with poor outcomes without treatment.
