India has reported a new peak of more than 352,000 daily cases of Kovid-19 and 2,812 deaths in the last 24 hours as the country falls under a major health crisis that has brought the entire health system to its knees.
The Minister on Monday announced Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, “Kovid-19 has caused havoc across the country, vaccination is the only way to overcome this disease.”
“This morning we approved 13.4 million doses of the vaccine for Delhi. The aim is to get as many people vaccinated as possible,” he said.
In hospitals, witnesses described corridors strewn with beds and stretchers and looked for a place for families or their loved ones begging in vain for oxygen. Facing a shortage of medical oxygen, the country has mobilized military aircraft to transport this vital substance to the epidemic-affected federal states.
In addition, local authorities have extended a period of imprisonment by a week in New Delhi, where “the devastation of coronovirus continues”, congratulating Mr. Kejriwal.
In recent weeks, a country of 1.3 billion people had been plunged into a major health crisis, overwhelmed by hospitals calling for help in the event of an epidemic explosion in part due to the circulation of the new version, B.176.
