India’s medical infrastructure faced unprecedented challenges during the second COVID-19 wave. The lack of hospital beds, shortage of oxygen supplies, insufficient availability of specific drugs, all lead to a critical situation.
Furthermore, the mortality rate was extremely high, making it difficult for people to cope with it mentally.
That said, it is important that we focus on stopping the surge, rather than depending entirely on the treatments available. Wearing masks, maintaining distance, avoiding crowds and most importantly, getting yourself vaccinated is highly crucial.
