The second wave of COVID-19 in India during mid-February has brought an unwarranted fear due to high morbidity and mortality. Instead of being perceived as a panic situation, the depleting medical resources of the country warrant better self-monitoring and medical compliance by the people with mild-to-moderate COVID-19 infection. This strategy can help in diverting the limited medical aid to those who are suffering with severe COVID-19 infection. As a ray of positivity, we report mild COVID-19 in a patient with a history of severe asthma. The patient successfully managed herself at home with remote medical consultation, medication compliance, intensive self-monitoring, and self-proning as key measures.
