Various factors interplay when it comes to successful containment of pandemic. In last one year, we have witnessed various countries formulating and practicing their own unique ways to tackle coronavirus. We have seen the most developed countries failing terribly and unable to slow the COVID-19 spread, but at the same time also endorsed the comparatively less resourceful countries outperforming in terms of reduced disease morbidity and mortality. Current review is about two regions from India (Dharavi and Kerala) who were different in their approach as compared to rest of the country and were able to keep the COVID-19 cases to the minimum.
