Recorded online in June, Dr Kaustubh Bondre talks to Mr. Khan about the comparative analysis of India’s response to the first & second covid wave, why the vaccination strategy faltered, the issue of vaccine hesitancy and the way in which we can attempt a course correction now (or can effectively deal with the crisis facing the country). This talk was recorded prior to the announcement of the new vaccination strategy by the Prime Minister, and is our first one in Hindi.
