In this episode, Abantika Ghosh joins us to talk about how India has handled the COVID-19 pandemic so far, in what ways our fight against the virus has changed, and the challenges that lie ahead for us now.

Also, we share the highlights of Indian Express’s latest interaction with Dr Randeep Guleria, Director, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), who is part of the core team monitoring the pandemic in the country.
