Covid-19 And Its Effects On India
As of May 8th, 2020, 56,342 positive cases have been reported in India. India, with a population of more than 1.34 billion—the second largest population in the world—will have difficulty in controlling the transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome Coronavirus 2 among its population.
The reaction of the Government Of India has been strong, as they realised that allowing the pandemic to run away would lead to serious loss of life given the limited per-capita medical facilities in India.
The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW), India, has raised awareness about the recent outbreak and taken necessary action to control COVID-19. Besides, the MOHFW has created a 24/7 disease alert helplines and provided policy guidelines on surveillance, clinical management, infection prevention and control, sample collection, transportation, and discharging suspected or confirmed cases.
