Coronavirus (951) Sharing my new Op-Ed: COVID-19 in Jammu and Kashmir

27 August, 2020

Hi Colleagues,

Here's the link to my latest article, published as 'letter to the editor' in Kashmir Observer. It discusses the current situation of COVID-19 in Jammu and Kashmir, the northern-most territory of India. It outlines the case fatality rate and highlights some challenges followed by key recommendations. It maintains that due to continuous coverage and reporting of COVID-19 related updates, an inundation has been caused. Hence, it is pertinent to empower citizens with the right information. Furthermore, it discusses the 'unknown' nature of COVID-19 and stigma attached to it. It also elucidates the importance of community involvement and youth

volunteers in the campaign against COVID-19.

Best Regards,
