The COVID-19 outbreak has subverted both procedures and circumstances of communication within the healthcare setting. Communication is impacted by the isolation of patients in dedicated units, assisted by health care professionals with personal protective equipment. Within this background, changes in communication between healthcare professionals, patients, and their relatives are needed. This report underlines, through an ethical and bioethical analysis, some relevant aspects that can support communication and reaffirms its role at the cornerstone of care.
