What a year 2020 has been!!! The world has experienced some unprecedented highs and lows in a span of 12 months. While our day today lives have been limited, tested, and squeezed hard by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, it brought out the best in us as humanity – unfettered resolve and gumption to survive and face the enemy with incredible bravery. Our sincere thanks and salutations to millions of healthcare colleagues around the world for their service and sacrifice in fighting this new enemy. It is incredible to see how quickly we learnt so many things about this new virus we had so little information about, to start with, there were a record number of clinical studies and over 100,000 publications on the effects of SARS-CoV-2 in less than year. We tested an amazing number of therapies ranging from Hydroxychloroquine through monoclonal antibodies against this uncanny pathogen with an incredible speed and have vaccinated millions of frontline health care workers in a record setting timeline.
