COVID-19 is a global public health threat. It affects more than 8 million people so far worldwide. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many challenges to hospitals such as shortage of healthcare providers, supplies, equipment and spaces in hospitals. Every country tries to solve the issues in hospitals using different methods. In some countries, health care providers are transferred from less affected areas to worst affected areas. Other countries too started manufacturing local personal protective equipment and medical equipment such ventilators, face masks and others. Others build emergency hospitals during the pandemic while some countries convert stadia, college dorms, hostels and big halls to temporary pandemic hospitals. This implies that it is a big challenge in managing hospitals during this pandemic. Most countries are trying their best to solve the issue within their own capacities.
