Sir,

The COVID-19 management in the currant ongoing pandemic is posing enormous challenge to clinicians worldwide. The definitive management remains to be explored for effective clinical outcome.

Therefore, we would like to share Innovative “19 H of COVID-19” Management Protocol being followed at our center.

Our center being a tertiary care, designated as dedicated COVID-19 Hospital, is equipped with dedicated 800 isolation beds, 100 intensive care unit beds, and 50 ventilators for COVID-19 patients.

The total numbers of admitted patients were 2216 during the period from April 1, to July 5, 2020. These patients were categorized into three different categories of pneumonia, namely, as mild, moderate, and severe on the basis of clinical and radiological assessment.[1]

The overall discharged cases were 1960 in numbers. This included total 560 mild, 264 moderate, and 147 severe cases of pneumonia.

The overall recovery rate of our center has been 88.44%, which is remarkably high as compared to the overall countrywide recovery rate of 60.86% (as on July 6, 2020, total 697,412 cases till July 6, 2020, 424,432 cases recovered).[2]

The overall fatality rate at our center has been 1.35% (i.e., 30 deaths out of total 2216 admitted patients), which is very less as compared to the overall national COVID fatality rate of 2.82%.[2]

In our experience, with our innovative management protocol of “19 H of COVID-19” [Box 1] in place, we could achieve the significantly lower mortality rate with remarkably high recovery rate. Thus, we strongly recommend this management protocol for clinical care and management of COVID-19 patients at all the centers of country.
