Pandemic Covid 19 has left everyone clueless and made the daily workers suffering without food and basic essential goods for their living as they are deprived of their daily works and wages during the first wave of covid19 and the second wave in recent months has overwhelmed the healthcare system, leaving hospitals in struggle and more devastating than the first. The fast spread of the second wave spared no time for the patients and who appeared normal were going out of control within short span of time developing dyspnoea (medical term for shortness of breath) and death is taking place within no time.
India had become the first country in the world to register above 4 lakh infections in a single day from till date from April 30. As the country is grappling with a severe second wave of Corona virus infections, the disease is now spreading in semi-urban, rural and tribal areas as well. The Central and State Government has taken many measurable steps to control the increasing rate of infection and death. However the migrant workers, homeless and the poor people have become the most vulnerable to the immediate impact and aftermath of Covid 19 catastrophe and still many find difficult to get their meal per a day. The World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus recently called India’s situation “concerning”. At the same time, several experts and doctors hinted at a possible third wave.
