More than 4.85 million Indians have been taken ill by the COVID-19 virus, but what has been the human cost on an extremely vulnerable section of the country’s population – people living with rare disease? The first episode of ‘1 in 20,000’ Season 2 – Rare Lives – delves on the pandemic and its impact.
Hosted by Avantika Shrivastava, this episode features the experiences of Dr. Dipanjana Datta, a genetic counsellor and West Bengal coordinator for the Organisation of Rare Diseases in India, and Dr. Apurba Ghosh who is the Director of the Institute of Child Health in West Bengal.
This season has been made possible from a grant by the Thakur Family Foundation.
