The health care workers working in the operation theater (OT) face many unique challenges to deal with the corona virus disease (COVID-19) patients undergoing surgery. We hereby report the management of a COVID-19 parturient undergoing cesarean section in the dedicated COVID health center. Patient care of this special and vulnerable subset of population with least exposure of COVID-19 to health care worker was the cornerstone of the management. We have summarized some of the important precautionary measures which were taken during cesarean section to minimize exposure and genuine use of resources in this pandemic. To conclude, despite Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), precautionary measures and strategies are of utmost importance and should be opted so as to lower the virus contagion risk.
