Abstract

In this paper we first provide a primer on SARS-CoV-2 and Covid-19 delineating the etiopathogenesis, epidemiology, clinical features and the course of the disease. We then trace the evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic highlighting the characteristics of the epidemic in select countries of Europe and the US. We also project some possible trajectories for the mega cities of India based on the demographic characteristics of the cities in comparison to New York city.
