In the Memory of 2021 : A Year of Havoc

In this volume, Oxfam India takes a look at the many dimensions of the question ‘could the pandemic have been managed better?’ When one looks at some of the decisions made by the Indian government, one can tell that relatively better management could indeed have been possible. India’s top virologist quit a scientific advisory panel after criticising the government’s ‘stubborn resistance to evidence-based policymaking’, an opinion that rings true.

India’s COVID-19 mismanagement includes the government’s complicity in actively allowing huge political rallies for election campaigns and mass religious gatherings, including the Kumbh Mela, where millions of people shunned the all-important mask while they jostled for space.
