What started a year ago is nowhere finished in India. The COVID-19 pandemic is in full force and the daily count of cases in India reached a new high of three lakhs on Thursday. This has made Delhi, the nation’s capital the worst-hit city in the country and Mumbai a close next. The cases in UP are on the rise and the state is currently witnessing a dilemma over a lockdown. The country is also seeing elections in some parts like West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Kerala etc. In this chaos, there have been reports from all over the country suggesting that there is a lack of a sufficient number of vaccine dosages, medicines, oxygen cylinders and plasma donors. As hospitals are getting more and more crowded, beds have also become insufficient leading to the collapse of the medical situation in the country.

As the cases are rising, citizens are being asked to stay indoors but no complete lockdowns have been placed. Masks are extremely vital in the fight against the virus as well. This second wave is affecting the age of 18-45 the most and we suggest you take a look at these COVID-19 resources and share them with anyone in need.

Delhi

The capital registered 24,638 cases on Wednesday and has been one of the biggest concerning cities. If you live in Delhi and need a bed, look at this website that provides a list of vacant beds, with the hospital names and contact addresses so that you can easily make your way to the hospital if need be. It is updated regularly by the Nodal Officers of each hospital in Delhi.
