Three pertinent points erupt from this story:
1. We do not have the primary healthcare infrastructure at all. That’s why she has to travel 50km for her life saving medicines.
2. The lockdown will be counterproductive if we are unable to keep our vulnerable patients shielded, who are doomed to come out and travel.
3. The Maharashtra Municipal Corporation doesn’t give a damn to personal privacy of the patients, forcing them to disclose their medical conditions in their building’s whatsapp group!!
I hope this journalist had taken her due consent before disclosing her identity.
