Cases and deaths erupted by Govt-19 in India: Understand in 5 points
Hospitals are short of medicine and oxygen, and relatives are forced to buy cylinders for inmates. Without beds, patients wait in ambulances, in private cars and even for a place on the street.
Input prices have risen in the co-market, with intermediaries selling oxygen even at the doorsteps of hospitals. In desperation, many people buy dubious looks and products at high prices. There are many reports of scams.
“We didn’t find oxygen,” says Mukesh Kashyap, who burned his 38-year-old wife. “We went to the biggest private hospitals in town, and finally a small hospital made me pay $ 55 for an hour of oxygen. [mais de R$ 350]”.
Kashyap, who went on strike, said he had made progress with Oxygen. “But the symptoms came back. We tried to find a bed, but she could not resist. The doctors could not save her.”

Crematoriums and cemeteries could not accommodate the number of bodies, and mass funerals were held in many cities. Ceremonies performed under the Govt-19 protocol are far superior to government data.
In New Delhi, the number of cremations has increased fivefold. The city hall of the capital is trying to increase the capacity of the local population by building burners even on the grass outside the companies.
As the health system collapses, many of the victims die at home and do not enter official figures.

The second wave lost control of the country in March after the Indian government spoke of a “final phase of the epidemic” and relaxed control measures, releasing rallies, religious ceremonies (see video below) and cricket matches with crowded stadiums. .
Election rallies for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the party of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, continue, with meetings taking to the streets, even with recordings of daily cases and deaths.
Modi, who accepted one of the biggest locks in the world last year, has refused to take action again this year so as not to affect the economic recovery. Now the government is facing harsh criticism.
The Indian government has said that the people’s government did not use masks to explode cases and deaths and that it was due to disrespect to social distance. And more recently Twitter has called for the removal of dozens of posts critical of the government.
Experts also point to the new variant (see below) and the government as the cause.

Amid criticism, the government announced this Saturday that it was expanding the vaccine against Govt-19 to people between the ages of 18 and 44.
But many states have been experiencing shortages of doses for weeks, and many Indians have reported social media issues in planning their vaccinations.
India, China (243 million) and the United States (234 million) are the third most used countries in the world (147 million).
But in proportion, the country used only 10.66 vaccines per 100 people, which is lower than the world average (13.93) and China (16.95) and much lower than the United States (70.16).
Suspected to be a cause of the second wave in India, variant B.1.617 has already been detected in dozens of countries, causing many more suspicions.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it is not known whether the number of cases and deaths in the country is high because the strain is so aggressive, the condition of the Indian health system or both.
According to the organization, the second wave may have been caused by “other behaviors”, i.e. non-compliance with health regulations and a high number of accumulations.
The WHO classifies the Indian strain as a “variance of interest”, not a “concern” (VOC).
Currently, the types classified as “anxiety” are Brazilian, British and South African. They are very dangerous (very contagious, very dangerous and resistant to vaccines).
