The psychological impacts of the new COVID-19 pandemic are already evident. The pandemic sequelae will be observed in many populations: clinicians who care for patients with COVID-19, patients with COVID-19 and their families, patients with established psychiatric disorders, as well as the general population. Distress Thermometer (DT) is a single-item, self-report measure of distress that provides a brief, visual analogue, non-invasive screening for distress among cancer patients, as well as patients with chronic diseases. In this brief report, we try to answer the question of: does distress thermometer have a utility in the era of COVID-19 pandemic?
