Episode 790 March 20, 2020

The problem with state budgets, measures by the Railways and herd immunity

The states, more than the Centre, are going to be the first line of defence against the coronavirus outbreak. But do their budgets allow for it? Do they have the finances for it? In the first segment, Udit Misra, talks about the recent analysis of 17 state budgets done by the India Express and why its findings reveal that things are not going to be easy.

Next, Avishek Dastidar talks about the series of measures taken by the Railways to combat the spread of COVID-19 (12:16).

And last, Kaunain Sheriff explains what herd immunity is and the reasons why the UK faced widespread criticism for using it as a method to deal with the coronavirus outbreak (19:06).
