With rapid developments and new guidelines every month on modalities and management of COVID-19, “we thought it is essential to put together a guide that could give healthcare workers an in-depth understanding of the disease and everything associated to pre and post-management along with related aspects like side-effects, long term health problems, and vaccination,” he added.
Apollo Hospitals Group Chairman Prathap C Reddy said, “The impact of COVID-19 on humanity has been unprecedented and the human, social, economic, and emotional toll that this virus has left in its trail is one of both despair and hope.”
It is with this sense of diligence that 80 authors have contributed chapters for this unique book which is timely and well-conceived, he added
