WHY HAPPENS SO BAD ?
INDIA'S...new wave of pandemic coronavirus cases continues to cripple the country, as more and more people have died waiting for oxygen, beds and medical supplies, according to BBC News reported.
A nasty second wave of the novel coronavirus has pushed India's total COVID-19 death toll above 200,000, BBC News reported. And that number might be higher as areas of the country might not have been reporting the full scope of the infections.
WHY IT HAPPENS IN INDIA ?
Experts are a little uncertain about why there's been a surge in coronavirus, as there hasn't been one answer to explain the spike. The country was heading toward a peaceful reopening and return to normal before the recent spike in cases, according to The Washington Post. It's happened so fast that there hasn't been a chance for massive research.
The World Health Organization reports that India is dealing with multiple variant to the coronavirus, which has accelerated the recent COVID-19 outbreak, The Washington Post reports.
According to The New York Times, the outbreak comes at a troubling time because the country has dealt with COVID-19 surges before. We know more about the virus than we did one year ago. But still, the coronavirus has pushed through, representing " a breakdown, a collapse, a realization that so many people will die. "
India Just Broke The Record For Daily COVID-19 Infections. Should World Be Worried About That ?
The new wave of cases might be tied to India's government dropping restrictions. For example, the country allowed mass gatherings like religious events and election rallies.
" There was no effort to prepare medical facilities despite so many countries around the world facing a second, more deadly, wave of the virus, " according to BBC News.
" Since the beginning of the pandemic COVID-19, it's been anticipated that India would be hit hard because of chronic under-investment in public health care-but if the country had prepared better for the inevitable, many lives could have been saved," BBC News reports.
When Actually India's COVID-19 Spike End ?
And it's unclear when this new spike will end. Per The New York Times, researchers are still monitoring the "double mutant" version of the virus, which takes parts of a variant found in California and one found in India. The double mutation has been circulating in India for a few weeks now.
" The science is still early but from what we know, this variant contains one mutation that may make the virus more contagious and another that may make it partially resistant to vaccines. Doctors are pretty scared. Some we have spoken to said they had been vaccinated twice and still got seriously ill, a very bad sign."
