About The Book In the present times, when the whole world is facing a horrific pandemic of COVID-19, we were thinking that it may not reach us after its origin from Wuhan in China. Initial news from those areas did not make us feel that the situation here may also reach the stage of national lockdown. Then the news from Europe started coming and India too started gearing up for the same. And our preparation also started in smooth and big way to face the pandemic caused by novel corona virus, probably a virus of origin from bats (?) or laboratory. The book is about COVID-19 and how we are facing it presently and what challenges we have to face. The authors are faculty members of one of the most reputed medical institutes in India with an attached tertiary care hospital.
