The second wave of coronavirus is having a toll on India and the entire world is surprised about why the government could not get a complete control over the situation. Hundreds of people are losing their lives as there is a huge scarcity for oxygen and hospital beds in the country. Several countries turned out to be a helping hand and are offering oxygen cylinders for the country in this crisis. Several scientists advised the government of India about the second wave but the government seems not to be bothered. Despite of the warning, the government did not impose any restrictions to stop the spread of the coronavirus in the country.
The major spread took place due to the people who attended the religious festivals and political rallies in millions without even wearing facemasks. The social distancing was completely ignored all over. Indian government held rallies before the Assembly polls in various states. Thousands of farmers even camped at the border of the national capital for months through which the spread was more. The scientists hinted about the second wave and multiple variants reaching India months ago but the Indian government was never cautious. The people too failed to follow the guidelines that have tp be followed.
There is huge scarcity for vaccines all over the country. Lakhs of people are struggling to take the second dose of coronavirus vaccine and millions of youth registered for the new vaccination drive announced from May 1st. But there is huge shortage for vaccinations across India. Several researchers detected new strain of the virus and warned the Indian government during February this year.
