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.
Private hospitals account for 2/3rd of all hospital beds in India and almost 80 per cent of the available ventilators, and yet they are handling less than 10% of the critical load of COVID-19. In this episode, we take a deep dive into the reasons why private hospitals are not joining in India’s fight against the virus. From the lack of proper protocols and fears of facilities being sealed, to claims of dwindling revenues and the stigma of a ‘COVID’ tag, Prabha Raghavan and Tabassum Barnagarwala join us to unpack these reasons.
