Resumen

En la pandemia por la COVID-19, las personas mayores son el grupo que concentra la mayor mortalidad, sobre todo quienes precisan de cuidados de largo plazo por haber perdido su habilidad funcional. Esta población vive en sus domicilios, con la familia o en un centro residencial. Se ha descrito que las personas mayores pueden desarrollar una forma de enfermedad oligosintomática o con una sintomatología clínica particular; por esta razón, las estrategias de tamizaje basadas en síntomas no son las más recomendables. Es necesario detectar de manera precoz a los enfermos en este grupo; por ello, analizamos y proponemos las mejores alternativas disponibles para conseguir este objetivo.
