ABSTRACT

Public Health Governance to Battle COVID-19 in India   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Summary: "The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic has wreaked havoc among the poor and those working in the unorganised sector in India. The surge of infections has also led to panic across the nation. The states appeared to have been inadequately prepared for the mass migration on the announcement. However, after the initial two or three days, the public health administration at the district level has rallied with alacrity. The coordination among the various state-level bodies has been remarkable. The policy of social distancing and containment seems to have checked community spread. However, it is still early for the government to relax the curbs."
