Coronovirus-19 disease (CVOID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome-CoV2 has more than affected 3 million people worldwide, accounting for one of the largest pandemics known to humankind. Originating in China and traveling all across the globe, it spreads by droplets and fomites. Cohort intensive care units have been set up to manage critically ill CVOID-19 patients requiring organ support. Respiratory support, including low and high-flow oxygen devices, noninvasive and invasive ventilatory support have been used in the management of patients with severe acute respiratory illness. Aerosol generating procedures pose a high risk of transmission to health-care workers and need strict infection control practices and the use of personal protective equipment. Various anti-viral drugs have been tried, but there is inadequate evidence to recommend their routine use.
