India is being hit by a rapidly worsening, deadly second wave of coronavirus infections. Health and critical care facilities are overwhelmed, leaving people without the life-saving medical care that they so urgently need. Last week has seen a major escalation of case numbers and a new variant suspected of stoking surge in India – and India now accounts for some 40% of all new cases of Covid-19. India is seeing an average of over 2000 deaths per day with close to 16 million recorded cases. Many more cases are unrecorded and the situation is truly desperate for many people in need. Indian hospitals say their patients are dying because of a shortage of oxygen as Covid case numbers and deaths set new records for the eighth day running. However, you can make a difference, play your part as a global citizen and help India in tackling the oxygen supply crisis and COVID-19.
