Will India save its hospitals before they save India?

Ujjval, that kind of granular data should take a couple of months. In the meantime, you could read the FICCI EY report on the sector available here - http://www.ficci.in/pressrelease-page.asp?nid=3677 . Also here are some of our old data based stories on the healthcare sector - https://the-ken.com/story/big-hospitals-lean/ , https://the-ken.com/story/indian-hospitals-greener-pastures/ and https://the-ken.com/story/kkr-radiant-max-hospital/

Will India save its hospitals before they save India?

Hi Nupur, the story is neither arguing for a bailout, nor is it saying that the doctors who can afford to take salary deductions should be paid. It indicates that if a sector faces losses then not just well paid doctors but other staff like the nurses, ward boys etc become vulnerable. Their livelihood and their loves are at risk. And I agree with you that it is a system failure. The public health system should have been much better prepared for infectious diseases and even pandemics.
