COVID-19 infection has hit humanity with a ferocious velocity that's left 7.8 billion humans across 195 countries in seven continents absolutely stunned. Never have we seen life brought to such an absolute standstill by a biological agent. The WHO declared the COVID-19 outbreak a global health emergency and subsequently a global pandemic. The hospitals and intensive care units have been packed to capacity. Most of the modalities of treatment are intuitive and based on a short experience of 6 months (three in our country). This article presents a practical approach to the management of patients with moderate and severe infection COVID-19. The patients in these two groups are separated on the basis of clinical and laboratory parameters. Adequate management of moderately severe patients may prevent the progression of the disease. The role of various specific agents used in the treatment is briefly discussed.
