The last few months has compelled us look at healthcare through the prism of the Covid 19 pandemic, the path of trajectory of the contagion points to the surge of the pandemic leading to a huge public health crisis. Despite the lockdowns imposed by several Governments across the world, the pandemic shows no signs of abating, with the daily fluctuating graph being a point of vexatious debate. The adamant virus has managed to leave its footprints everywhere leading to an enormous challenge being thrown on our healthcare system, traditionally entrenched in combating diseases prevalent in our society. Though in recent years in the last decade or so the virus crisis has manifested as SARS, H1N1, Swine flu, the current zenith of Covid 19 has surpassed the viruses prevalence hitherto known to the world in a short span of time. The pandemic has ravaged societies across the countries and created economic and social imbalances affecting all strata of the society in developed and developing nations as well. This pandemic is no longer confined to the boundaries of any nation, its prevalence today is across continents, threatening to upend humanity. Today we stand at the edge of a precipice, staring at a crisis at a time when our civilization is trying to achieve its pinnacle. The impact of health on our socio economic structure, is undeniable and we no longer can push it under a carpet and ignore it anymore.
