Abstract

We analyze the Covid-19 scenario in India and compare it with those in other large-population regions such as Asia-excluding-China, Africa, European Union, South America, and USA. We compare existing fatality data and offer an interpretation based on inherent immunity and climate in various regions. We also present an India-specific strategy of releasing low vulnerability group from the lockdown and estimate the time required to attain herd immunity. Whatever optimism we present should be viewed as a guarded optimism. There should not be room for complacency.

Subject Areas
