India's COVID-19 tally saw yet another record surge with both daily cases and deaths hitting new highs. India now has nearly 2 million active cases; the highest since the outbreak of the pandemic last year.
Delhi has gone into a lockdown for six days and multiple states have numerous restrictions in place to curb large scale movement of people and goods. It's almost a déjà vu as some of the questions that bothered people during the first wave have returned.
Questions like: What to do if you test positive and are asymptomatic? When does one need hospitalisation? Are the protocols different for children? Often creep up in one's mind. To answer all these queries and more, CNBC-TV18 Managing Editor Shereen Bhan spoke to three top doctors from the country – Dr Mahesh Joshi, CEO of Apollo Home Healthcare; Dr Vivek Nangia, Principal Dir - Pulmonology at Max Hospital; and Dr SP Byotra, Head - COVID Team at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital on this special edition called COVID Helpline.
