Since emergence, coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) has extensively spread to >210 countries. Till date, no specific drug or vaccine has been developed against this deadly disease. Thus, all affected countries have been struggling to manage their COVID-19 patients. Here, we aimed to report impact of health service facilities on outcome of COVID-19 patients. As of June 28, 2020, the highest number of COVID-19 patients was reported in USA, which sum up to 2,617,847 with 4.9% death. Likewise, Spain, Italy, UK and France were greatly affected by COVID-19 with 10.0 to 18.0% death. Notably, Germany has been affected by COVID-19 in similar to UK and France with a total of 194,771 confirmed cases; however, recovery rate is very high (91.3%) with only 4.6% death. Alternatively, India and Bangladesh reported positive cases of 548,817 and 137,787, respectively. The comparison of health service facilities among different countries shows that Germany and also Russia have the highest number of doctors, hospital beds, ICU and ventilators in proportion to their people, which might contribute to restrict death rate only 1.4 to 4.6% with excellent recovery. USA has better health system with compared to that in China, India and Bangladesh; however, the recovery rate is 41.3 %, because the country is dealing with large number of patients. The limited health service facilities in Bangladesh might result in relatively lower recovery rate (40.4%) of COVID-19 patients. Thus, health service facilities of the nations are likely to be associated with successful management of COVID-19 patients.

Key words: COVID-19, emergence, health service facilities, management, recovery, death.
