See dear dr.. steroids r debatable issue.. At present it is included in protocol by covid19 task force.. When covid19 positive case starts on low oxygen saturation showing below 93..steroids been advised to start.. Dose:0.5mg -1 mg/kg/day. Increased to 2mg/kg/d if saturation dips below 90.

Thank you doctor
