▪︎A need of strict adherence to optimal scientific research and evidence-based medical guidelines is the key to ensure better treatment outcomes in our patients.


▪︎The strategy to adopt in approaching the patients has to be economical, rational and in accordance with the original scientific guidelines. We should learn to ensure scientific and evidence-based investigative and therapeutic practices to effectively deal with COVID patients. 


▪︎As per scientific research, the use of steroids should be avoided in patients who do not require supplemental oxygen. The indiscriminate use of otherwise useful drugs may even prove harmful and counterproductive to patients, as well as pose a risk for scaling up the opportunistic infections like Black Fungus in immunocompromised patients.


▪︎People must not self-medicate with steroids, antibiotics or other medications at home, rather they should use them under proper supervision by a doctor and under scientifically proven guidelines.


▪︎Experts from abroad must help and guide their professional colleagues to follow evidence-based clinical best practices, so as to provide the best possible care to patients. 


▪︎Patients with co-morbid conditions must be given quick access to treatment at public healthcare facilities. Optimum and timely treatment of such patients for the underlying diseases would not only ensure better outcomes but would help in reducing mortality among such patients.
