Dear Readers,

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which is caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), was first identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, China, and has since spread rapidly. There have been several reports of eye redness and irritation in COVID-19 patients, both unreliable and published, suggesting that conjunctivitis may be an ocular manifestation of SARS-CoV-2 infection. COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly changing the way the health and development communities are working.

  • SUCCESS OF TELEMEDICINE DURING COVID-19 IN INDIA

  • The COVID-19 pandemic in India provided an unexpected but timely opportunity to ramp up tele-ophthalmology applications in order to ensure that paediatric patients received appropriate care during the lock down.

  • CORONAVIRUS HAS BECOME THE BOOSTER SHOT THAT TELEMEDICINE WAS WAITING FOR IN INDIA

  • India formally recognised the practice of telemedicine recently.

    With Covid-19 cases spreading across the country, face-to-face consultations can be risky for both patients and doctors. Under the circumstances, remote consultations over the phone or video calls can help patients access health care while also limiting their and doctors’ exposure to the disease.

    The government’s new “telemedicine practice guidelines”  legitimise the practice of remote consultations. This could pave the way for widespread adoption of telemedicine not only during this crisis but also in the future.
