The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) on Monday warned of widespread coronavirus infections in India, saying his agency was working swiftly to help cope with the crisis in India. The news agency Reuters reported.
WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said: “The situation in India is dire. The WHO is working hard to provide the necessary equipment.
Many hospitals in India, which are plagued by widespread coronavirus infections, are overcrowded. When Covid-19 patients were admitted to those hospitals, they were forced to return them. The number of deaths in Corona is also increasing rapidly. Cremations in Delhi and Maharashtra have to spend a lot of time burying the dead.
The video, which has spread on social media, shows the patient’s relatives longing for oxygen or a hospital bed. Meanwhile, the lockdown in the capital Delhi has been extended for seven days.
More than 2,600 WHO specialists have been appointed to work with medical personnel in India, said the head of the UN health agency. In addition, several thousand oxygen concentrators, mobile hospitals and lab equipment have been provided, said Tedros Adhanam.
Coronavirus is now the most aggressive form of coronavirus in India, a country of 1.3 billion people. Many countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom, have sided with India in providing vaccines and other equipment.
