The COVID-19 pandemic, followed by the massive lockdown has resulted in uncertainty and instability like nothing most of us have seen in our lifetime. We need to be in sync with the efforts of the government in ensuring that the lives of millions are protected, India with its vast population and fragile public health infrastructure can't afford any latency. We have seen the fate of nations who prioritised livelihood over lives and were not able to keep either front.
