Prime Minister Imran Khan recently hit out at India for its high coronavirus cases despite its economy-damaging lockdown as he boasted about Pakistan’s success in containing Covid & saving its economy with ‘smart’ lockdowns. In this episode of ThePrint Debates, Dr Srinath Reddy, President of Public Health Foundation of India, and Dr Faisal Mahmood, Associate Professor of Infectious Diseases at Pakistan's Aga Khan University, discuss the varying approaches on how the two countries handled Covid, the difference in their testing strategies and how a younger population and slow spread of the virus benefited them both.

Moderated by National and Strategic Affairs Editor, Jyoti Malhotra.
