A Review of India’s Preparedness to Tackle the Covid19 Crises?
Keywords:Covid-19, Mathematical Modelling, Health Infrastructure, Future of India
The novel Coronavirus, first appeared in Wuhan province of China in late December 2019, and gripped
the whole world in 2020, growing to be a full-blown pandemic and changed every individual’s life completely.
India recorded its first Novel Coronavirus case on 30th January 2020 in Kerala, a student from Wuhan,
China. In this article, the question about whether India is ready to tackle the crisis, i.e., Covid-19, was
answered. Three mathematical models were reviewed and then compared to the number of beds available
in the country. The third mathematical model seemed to model the country’s curve much closer than the
second one. The first one’s prediction actually came out to be true. Furthermore, the paper discusses the
health infrastructure in the country and the strategies adopted by states to prevent the spread. It talks about
two specific states Kerala and Maharashtra and how the country needs to deal with the crisis. It is important
to note that according to the models and numbers currently, India is geared, However, if precautions are not
taken the situation can get much worse. This paper also discusses the fatality rates currently in India and
where we stand for treatment. Currently, the treatment protocols keep changing from time to time.
