We catch up with Dr Arun K Chopra for an update on the Coronavirus situation in India - and the world.

This is a follow up chat with Dr Chopra on Covid-19. We spoke six months ago (remotely) when Coronavirus had just struck India to gain his early perspective on the challenges at play.

As a Senior Cardiologist and member of Fortis Amritsar's Covid-19 response team, he now shares a refined view under the framework of what we now know vs what we thought we knew.  

From Covid's starting perception as a plain pneumonia-like condition to its evolution into a complicated disease spanning through multiple organs, organ systems, and immune responses, we chat with Dr Chopra across dimensions to understand what has changed in our understanding of: 

  • Coronavirus Disease Transmission
  • Coronavirus Disease Progression
  • The Wide Variety of Symptoms
  • Care Needed Post Disease
  • Current Treatment and Potential Future Vaccine Fix
