A vulnerability index for the management of and response to the COVID-19 epidemic in India: an ecological study

The vulnerability indices reported in this study are intended to spatially identify vulnerable regions in India according to five different domains of vulnerability. The index aims to help planners and policy makers to effectively plan resource allocation and risk mitigation strategy for better preparedness and response to the epidemic. The index provides vulnerability for 5 domains at state and district levels for 30 states, 6 union territories and 640 districts (as per census 2011 administrative boundaries). The 5 domains of vulnerability are: socio-economic, demographic, housing & hygiene condition, non-availability of health care and epidemiological.
