Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has tested the readiness and preparedness of healthcare systems to respond to a global pandemic of such magnitude. Low and middle-income countries seem to be struggling more in meeting the high healthcare needs.
In this case-report from Sudan, we present an elderly lady who had been successfully treated and recovered from COVID-19 at home-level. She was managed at home due to the unavailability of hospital beds. However, various factors contributed to the favourable outcome.
