COVID-19 initially emerged from Wuhan, Central China in late December 2019. Its neighbouring country, India reported its first COVID-19 positive case in late January followed by a rapid surge in cases due to community spread, regional congregation meetings and presence of active super spreaders. Active surveillance was the main method for COVID-19 prevention and was strictly implemented by the Government. RT-PCR was the main investigation tool conducted by ICMR linked laboratories across the nation. Nationwide lockdown, genetic variation of virus and humid weather has shown to play vital role in epidemic spread and reduced mortality of COVID-19. Management is multipronged based on mild, moderate and severity of clinical features. Mild cases are observed for vitals, moderate cases are treated with oxygenation and steroids. Severe and critically ill patients are mainly supported by ventilators.
