Sambodhi Research

India has lost over 4 million lives to Covid-19 so far, yet a majority of its citizens are still not prepared to deal with the disease.

The preparedness to deal with Covid-19 among urban poor and rural households in India is “abysmally low,” as per a survey conducted by Sambodhi Panel, a multidisciplinary research organisation. The survey included 7,116 households in 10 Indian states: Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Bihar, and Gujarat.
