When we asked expats and global nomads in India about their experiences during the pandemic with the local healthcare system, they replied...

"The pandemic has had a significant impact on India's healthcare system. Many hospitals have been overwhelmed with the influx of patients, leading to long wait times and limited access to medical care. Additionally, the shortage of medical supplies and protective equipment has made it difficult for healthcare workers to provide adequate care. The government has implemented various measures to help alleviate the strain on the healthcare system, such as providing free testing and treatment for COVID-19 patients, as well as increasing the number of beds in hospitals. Despite these efforts, the pandemic has exposed the weaknesses of India's healthcare system, and it is clear that more needs to be done to ensure that everyone has access to quality healthcare," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to India.
