The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has presented India with complex economic and public health challenges. Furthermore, these two crises interact with each other in unpredictable ways hence there is considerable uncertainty in designing a policy response. This article purports to place India’s experience with the coronavirus with a cut-off date of 30 June 2020 in perspective and to examine the public health and economic challenges as well as the economy’s prospects in a post-COVID world. The article lists key dates in the development of this pandemic in India and globally. We then outline the economic and health strategies followed in India to combat the crisis. We further discuss some consequences of the pandemic and elements of India’s recovery strategy. We also assess elements of India’s recovery. Finally, this article discusses prospects for the Indian economy in the short run.
