Our flagship daily news show, where hosts Shashank Bhargava and Snigdha Sharma talk to in-house experts about what is going on and why you need to care about it.
India is grappling with a massive second wave of COVID-19 infections. Due to this rise, it has become the country with the second-highest number of cases globally. In this episode, we speak to noted epidemiologist Dr Giridhar Babu about the reasons behind this surge, whether a lockdown would be an effective strategy against it, the role of vaccinations during this time, how this wave is different from the first, and the lessons we fail to learn.
Dr Babu is the Head of Life Course, Epidemiology at Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI), and is also a member of the Karnataka COVID-19 Technical Advisory Committee.
