After the increasing number of cases in India, which is one of the countries most affected by the coronavirus, crematoriums started working around the clock. Official statements about Covid deaths in the country have also raised suspicions.
India, which has more than 200,000 cases every day, has found the remedy to run crematoriums 24 hours a day, where people who die are cremated.
Shots from a crematorium in Delhi, a city of 29 million people, laid bare the scale of the country’s covid-19 crisis.
The country’s death toll is also starting to cast doubt. Officially, about 180,000 people died from the coronavirus in total, and 15,000 this month alone. But some believe the actual number may be higher.
The country’s health system is at a tipping point after a new variant, with experts warning that these variants could disable vaccines.
According to the country’s media reports, there has been a significant increase in cases, especially among young people. A new variant is also being blamed.
The B.1,617 variant is believed to spread more easily and could be potentially more deadly than other species.
The number of vaccines administered in the country, which has a population of about 1.4 billion, exceeded 127 million. However, many states in India, where there is a widespread vaccination campaign against the disease, are experiencing a shortage of vaccines.
Launched in India on January 16th, the vaccination campaign was first expanded to include frontline workers such as medical personnel, and later those over the age of 45.
According to the “Ourworldindata.org” website, which compiles Covid-19 vaccination data, India is “the 3rd most vaccinated country in the world”, behind the United States and China.
Experts warn the health system is at a “tipping point,” pointing out that hospital occupancy rates are at their highest level following rising cases across the country.
More than 15 million cases have been detected so far in India, which has been “the country with the highest number of cases recorded in the world daily” since April 2nd.
More than 180,000 people have died in the country, with more than 13 million recovering from the virus.
