“The ongoing Covid pandemic has highlighted the importance of providing equitable access to high-quality healthcare services for all sections of the society. This is critical to improve disease outcomes, reduce the negative impact of health disorders and pandemics on people’s lives, and build a fairer, healthier world. India has managed the Covid pandemic very well so far, despite having the world’s second largest population which faces huge challenges in terms of accessibility and affordability of modern healthcare. I believe India has reached herd immunity in the last 3 to 4 months which led to a decline in Covid cases. The new strains of Coronavirus have now triggered a second wave of Covid. We should not let our guard down and take precautions. Accelerating the Covid vaccination program is the need of the hour rather than the current slow-and-steady approach.”
