Throughout the pandemic, Saifee Hospital participated in drug trials to identity new treatments such as Remdesivir and Tocilizumab.

Our care for COVID-19 patients was on a level with top hospitals of the city even though we are not a tertiary care centre.

Although most COVID-19 patients recover within a few weeks, some can experience mild symptoms for longer periods. While symptoms generally resolve with time, so the best way to protect yourself & others from COVID-19 and the lasting symptoms of the illness is by getting vaccinated.
