Physical examination has been one of the three pillars of diagnostic evaluation of illnesses. It has a larger role in the armamentarium of non-physician health workers. Due to prescriptions for social distancing in preventing COVID19, physical examination is being performed lesser than before. This poses a serious threat to the abilities of NPHW as well as to their relationship with the community.
