Abstract

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus -2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the zoonotic coronavirus responsible
for the present pandemic of COVID-19. The novel ways of transmission of this virus have eluded and
infected the global population, surpassing the confines of the place of its origin in Wuhan, China. The
healthcare workers are one of the most susceptible populations and laboratory safety protocols are being
devised throughout the world to protect the laboratory personnel, who are the frontline fighters in this
war against the virus. The present narrative review is an attempt to encompass the published literature
sharing the experience and guidelines of biosafety for those working in histopathology and cytopathology
laboratories.

Keywords: SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19, Biosafety, Histopathology, Cytopathology.
