Growing evidence is showing the usefulness of lung ultrasound in patients with the 2019 new coronavirus disease (COVID‐19). Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 has now spread in almost every country in the world. In this study, we share our experience and propose a standardized approach to optimize the use of lung ultrasound in patients with COVID‐19. We focus on equipment, procedure, classification, and data sharing.
