The infection in India is growing faster than anywhere else in the world, far from ending a serious remembrance epidemic.
Kovid-19 infections and deaths are rising at an alarming pace in India, with no end to the crisis and a top expert warning that the coming weeks in a country of about 1.4 billion people will be “terrible”.
The official count of coronovirus cases in India crossed 20 million on Tuesday, nearly doubling in the past three months, while officially deaths have exceeded 220,000. Staggering as those numbers, it is believed that the true figures are far higher, a clear reflection of the troubles in the health care system.
Scenes of people dying outside heavy hospitals have been seen in the country and funeral pyres illuminate the night sky.
The infection in India has been on the rise since February when more infectious variants of the virus were blamed as well as government rulings to allow the gathering of huge crowds for Hindu religious festivals and political rallies ahead of state elections.
