This research paper talks about how covid19 affected rural communities in India and how they recovered from it. As the rural healthcare in India was not prepared for containing the covid19 transmissions, especially in densely populated northern regions of India due to lack of doctors, hospital beds, and equipment. The impacts of this pandemic, and especially the lockdown strategy, are multi-dimensional. The authors argue for the need to take immediate steps to control the spread and its aftereffects and to use this opportunity to strengthen and improve its primary health care system in rural India.
