The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has ravaged India with more than 8.14 million patients having contracted it and nearly 122,000 fatalities being recorded at the time of penning this editorial. Although pandemics, by their very nature, have a global impact, the effects on population vary disproportionately, according to the prevailing socioeconomic conditions.[1] Countries that cannot guarantee social protection and equitable access to health care to their most vulnerable citizens run the risk of an extended and more severe pandemic.[2]
