A new genre of patriotism is emerging in response to the Covid-19 crisis and the least we must do is embrace healthier lifestyles
SARS-CoV-2 is testing the world and certainly its largest democracy. Hence, the Indian Prime Minister’s clarion call to “prepare, but not panic" was apt and responding to it, hundreds of thousands of Indians have risen to the occasion and are working tirelessly to meet the challenge. As I write this, close to 1.5 million travellers have been screened across our airports, a massive taskforce is fumigating and cleaning public places, state governments and local bodies are enforcing quarantine measures and thousands of medical professionals are working 24x7, taking care and testing people coming into hospitals and medical facilities.
