INDIA - COVID-19 SECOND WAVE

THE PRESENT SITUATION IN INDIA

With oxygen supplies getting over, hospital beds full, and death and infection rates rising, the COVID-19 situation in India looks increasingly dire. And as the disaster deepens, India on Thursday recorded another 3,645 COVID-19 deaths a new record for the country, and registered almost 380,000 cases in 24 hours.


The official numbers are widely believed to be far lower than the reality, and the devastating outbreak has overwhelmed crematoriums and graveyards.


THE PRESENT SITUATION IN DELHI AND NORTHERN INDIA (30th April 2021)

  • India has 19,157,094 Total Cases

  • 402,110 added yesterday

  • 3522 death on a single day

  • Total death 211,835

  • And it's grossly under-reported

The fear and Social stigma adding to the woe

In Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh, humanity became ashamed when an elderly man was not allowed by the villager to perform the last rites of his dead wife. An old man carried his dead wife’s body around on a bicycle.


THE MAJOR CAUSES OF FATALITIES

  • Non-availability of bed in the Hospitals

  • Non Availability of Ventilators

  • Acute Shortage of Oxygen Cylinder

  • Overwhelmed healthcare system

  • Overworked health care staff
