The pandemic of COVID-19 is a global public health emergency which has seriously affected India. Poor and marginalized sections of the society have been affected the most. This relatively new disease is still evolving in various parts of the world with lots of implications like global socioeconomic disruption. In this article we have attempted to enumerate and discuss the evidence, for and against, regarding some of the commonly reported controversies regarding our management strategies in India. We collected information from various databases published by the World Health Organization (WHO), Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. Newer clinical, epidemiological and laboratory guidelines to control the corona virus are constantly being generated and updated but there is less understanding of the urgent need for strengthening our public health infrastructure.
