How Indian doctors have let us down during this Coronavirus outbreak

I have been very disappointed by how Indian physicians have behaved during the coronavirus outbreak.
Instead of carrying out observational clinical trials of what happens to people in Dharavi who don’t wear masks properly and can’t follow social distancing norms, they are wasting time fill out forms and obeying bureaucratic diktats which have no sound clinical basis whatsoever !
Doctors have become glorified clerks !
We are wasting this opportunity to study these ” natural experiments”, which can teach us far more than all the economist’s fancy mathematical models in the world !
