Abstract

In early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic is spreading rapidly around the world. Globally, as of 4:44 pm (Central European Summer Time (CEST), 24 June 2020, there have been 9,129,146 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including 473,797 deaths, reported to WHO, with a mortality rate of 5.19%. Among them, the morbidity and mortality of the elderly account for a large proportion. Elderly care institutions have become the most severely hit under the background of pandemic outbreaks. Elderly care institutions around the world face great challenges in protecting the elderly during the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on the characteristics of the elderly, this article explores the protection of elderly care institutions in the response to the pandemic and puts forward suggestions on the health management of the elderly, the closed management of elderly care institutions and the improvement of pension service mode in public health emergencies.
