COVID-19 has had immense effect on the resource of the country with large number of admissions in the critical care unit and in the ward.

We assessed the spectrum of referrals that were seen and have drawn a relation to the drugs administered, falls in the ward, scald burn due to steam inhalation and the correlation between the number of patients who were intubated or required any assistance in respiration due to the COVID-19 pneumonia.
