The first positive case of coronavirus came to light in Jammu & Kashmir’s summer capital Srinagar on 18 March 2020, triggering concern among people in the valley. The threat of a highly infectious virus has been compounded with the region’s long months of being cut off from the rest of India and an information deprivation thanks to 2G internet speeds.
The audit noted that the doctor to patient ratio in the Kashmir region is one of the lowest in India. “Compared to the doctor-patient ratio of 1:2,000 in India, Jammu and Kashmir has one allopathic doctor for 3,866 people against the WHO norm of one doctor for 1,000 population,” it said.
