As the numbers of COVID-19 patients continue to soar around the world, we try and understand what this means for millions of Indians, across different walks of life. This is a special episode of The Big Fight where we look at this almost unbelievable crisis, something that's almost out of a thriller, except this is in real life and quite frightening. And why is that the case? Because COVID-19 is many times more contagious than the seasonal flu, because there is no cure, and because the rate at which the infection is doubling makes this one of the greatest challenges that nations have ever faced. The situation in several Western European countries is bleak and the impact on various parts of our economy could be catastrophic. This is why the World Health Organisation has dubbed this a global pandemic.
