Dr Swati Piramal, Vice Chairperson, Piramal Group, Mumbai shares her views on the current pandemic situation

"This pandemic will not vanish like magic and will continue till 2022 so the regimen for re-opening the economy will be the 5 pillars: hygiene, distancing, screening, masks and culture. According to a Goldman Sachs report, wearing a mask could save $279 billion and cut mortality to half. In India our healthcare is under invested, 75% is the private healthcare while public healthcare is just 25% and due to lockdown, the private healthcare was shut down and lot of burden came on public healthcare. There is a need to leverage new-age technologies and collaborate in order to tackle the pandemic and safeguard communities.”
