In India, the second most populous country in the world, the corona virus outbreak has reached frightening levels… The number of cases and deaths has multiplied as oxygen shortages have also lingered in the country, which is desperate for new waves of the epidemic. Authorities in the country have been forced to burn those who died in the open air.
In India, where there have been more than 16 million cases and this number has increased exponentially recently, the number of cases and deaths is evolving to frightening levels… Authorities are desperate for a global record number of deaths and cases in the past two days in the country, where more than 186,000 people have died from the coronavirus outbreak, according to official data.
Especially with the buildup in hospitals and lack of oxygen, there is a panic in the country. So much so that with the rapid increase in the death toll in India, there is no room even in crematoriums. A Delhi resident, Nitish Kumar, told Reuters news agency that he had to keep his mother’s lifeless body at home for two days because there was no room in the crematoriums in the city and it was necessary to wait in line.
Reuters also shared photos of some residents turning a parking lot into an open-air crematorium, stressing that many people were sent on their eternal journeys in this way. The number of cases has increased rapidly, especially in major cities such as Delhi, said Jitender Singh Shunty, who runs a nonprofit health agency. 15 people were waiting in line. No one in Delhi would believe that. From a 5-year-old to a 25-year-old, even newlyweds died. These are very difficult to watch.”
Shunty said he burned an average of 8-10 people a day in the first wave of the outbreak. The government’s not doing anything. Everyone is taking care of themselves.”
