Recently, the epidemic situation around the world tends to be stable, but one country is still deteriorating in an avalanche, with more than 300,000 cases increasing, and the national health system is close to collapse. This country is-
There is a shortage of cremation sites and firewood in India, Indian men complain that they are not supplied with oxygen and slapped by parliamentarians, aerial photography of large-scale cremation sites in the Indian capital, interception of oxygen trucks by Indian local governments, new symptoms in COVID-19 patients in India, and nearly one million new cases in India in three days …
The epidemic in India has been searched six times in one day.
Today we will talk about what happened to India.
How terrible is the second outbreak in India? Let’s look at the increasing number of cases in India.
Since the end of March this year, the increasing number of cases in India has soared almost like a rocket. On April 4th, 104,000 cases were added, which broke through the 100,000 mark for the first time, surpassing the peak of the first epidemic.
Then things quickly got out of hand.
On April 15, the daily number of cases exceeded 200,000; On April 21st, the daily number of cases exceeded 300,000. It takes less and less time to refresh the record.
At present, the number of confirmed cases in India is as high as 16.6 million, only half of that in the United States. However, if this trend continues, India will surpass the United States and become the global epidemic center in the first half of this year.
The sharp deterioration of the epidemic brought India’s health system to near collapse.
Most hospitals are overcrowded, and two people have to lie in the same hospital bed and share a breathing machine. There are patients in the walkways and halls, and there are many patients lying on the streets who cannot be admitted to the hospital.
In New Delhi, the capital with a population of more than 20 million, the whole city can no longer find an empty intensive care bed.
The leakage of the house coincided with the rain all night long. Some time ago, an oxygen tank explosion occurred in another hospital, resulting in 24 deaths and more than 10 injuries.
In the face of the surging second epidemic, countless human tragedies have been staged in the South Asian subcontinent.
Vinay, a 65-year-old Indian journalist, recently tried to awaken Indians’ attention to the epidemic by using Twitter to broadcast the tragic death process.
After some suspected symptoms such as rapid drop in blood oxygen concentration, Vinai wanted to go to hospital, but was rejected by three different hospitals, asking him to get the positive results of Covid-19 test first.
Due to the lack of local testing ability, Vinay waited for three days to test, and then waited for the test results for another three days.
Seeing that the oxygen concentration was declining and it was difficult to breathe, Vinai and his family begged everywhere that they could not buy oxygen cylinders. Finally, a relative lent them his own oxygen cylinders, but they quickly ran out.
A few hours before his death, Vinai sent a desperate cry on Twitter, “When will someone help me?” At that time, his blood oxygen concentration dropped to only 31 (the normal value was 95-99).
