Dear editor, SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) has been a problem for the whole world since the beginning of 2020, and the war against this virus should be the top priority of all healthcare professionals. Elective surgical procedures have been delayed or significantly reduced. Many issues that were our first priority before the pandemic have now been pushed into the background. The anesthesiology community has been testing new methods for opioid sparing anesthesia and analgesia for years and setting in these methods as a principle in the protocols we chose; we cannot currently, due to the Covid-19 pandemic condemn patients to opioids [, , ]. In this article, we want to emphasise the main target as perioperative analgesia and chronic pain management, and we describe what we believe is the right way forward for achieving this goal. In recent years, metanalyses have been published showing that the use of interfacial blocks as part of multimodal analgesia reduces postoperative opioid requirement in surgical patients . We have some suggestions in the analgesia plan of patients that are suspect of having or have been diagnosed with COVID-19.
