Inside India’s Unfolding Healthtech Revolution

“It was tough,” recalls Ramachandran R., the district collector of Bidar in Karnataka. Last March, as the first wave of the pandemic swept the country, the 240-bed covid-19 hospital under his jurisdiction was overwhelmed.

Their fear of infection made it worse.
