Background: Covid-19 is a global pandemic declared by the world health organization (WHO). The morbidity andmortality increase as the gradeof disease severity increases as per WHO criteria. When the government health facilities and hospitals in major cities were flooded with patients, it was essential to manage Covid-19 cases at remote rural places with limited health facilities. Limited information is available about the management of moderate to severe cases in resource constraint hospital settings. Objective: To assess outcomes of patients with moderate and above severity. Patients and Method: It was a retrospective observational study. Forty-six moderate to severe covid-19 cases admitted in a rural hospital setting with limited resources were studied. Selected cases were included and excluded, as per WHO-defined criteria. Result: The proposed approach provides an alternative cheap and reliable management in limited-resource hospital settings for the management of moderate to severe Covid-19 cases. All treated patients except two (Referred) were recovered and doing well in the follow-up. Conclusion: The authors emphasize the importance of close monitoring, proper management of covid 19 as well as comorbidities using simple medicine techniques. There was an important role of psychological support from treating staff and family.
