Touch is a modality that patients and doctors feel is integral part of the consultation. While old physicians still rely on healing touch, new generation is oriented more on technology- driven -investigation- based practice. High risk of transmission of COVID-19 via contact spread and touch and increase in number of asymptomatic carriers leads to multifold risk to treating physicians. Corona pandemic is leading to distancing between doctors and patients and the ancient healing touch is losing shine with time and somehow leaving a permanent scar on doctor patient relationship
