The outbreak of the novel Coronavirus has posed serious introspection to many aspects of our life. It has also had a debilitating effect on the health and economy in the global and individual scale. It poses a big cruncher question on the state in which today’s public healthcare system stands in defying the odds put in by the pandemic. The epidemic has also cast light on the disparities and obscurities that are present in today’s public healthcare system not only in the national but international level also. With a middle income country like India, having vast population and considering the changes brought into this sector by reforms in recent years, it is axiomatic that achieving universal health care will not be a mirage anymore if for further effective improvements being under taken in this sector. The article gives a retrospective glimpse into the state of public healthcare in India with respect to the global level and also touches on the aspect of how certain countries efficiently tackled the first phase of COVID-19 with their public health care systems. It further articulates the imminent steps and measures India has taken in its battle against COVID-19 in the national and state level as well as the legislations that acted as a panacea in resolving the pandemic.
