India's Health Experts on Vaccines, Drugs & Future of Pandemics
Dr Chandrakant Lahariya, Dr Gangandeep Kang, Dr Randeep Guleria on what COVID-19 pandemic taught us.
2020 have been a year of a devastating pandemic that brought the world we live in to a standstill. But it’s also been a year of remarkable scientific achievement, never seen before collaboration and community participation. Each country’s COVID fight tells a different and unique story - in terms of sheer numbers we have had over 10 million coronavirus cases. We’ve lost over 1.5 lake lives, but if one looks at percentages the fatality remains below 1.5%, among the lowest in the world.
As we look back at the year that was, I am joined by some of the biggest names in public health in India today.
Dr Gangandeep Kang is well respected virologist from CMC Vellore the Vice Chair for CEPI - Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations,
Dr Randeep Guleria, a leading pulmonologist and Director of All India Institute of Medical Sciences
and Dr Chandrakant Lahariya, a public health and health systems expert.
What brings them together is a book called TILL WE WIN: India’s Fight Against the COVID-19 Pandemic. Listen in.
