Hope and Deaths in India

Arun Sharma , Press Trust of India (PTI), India
I am sharing my experience dubbed Hope and Deaths in (Uttar Pradesh and Delhi) India. About 3.2 million people may have died from COVID in India by September last year. That is six to seven times higher than officially reported, according to a study based on one independent and two government data sources. COVID patients in Uttar Pradesh were forced to share oxygen tanks and beds due to acute shortages. Families began stocking up on oxygen tank cylinders for their loved ones. Long waits for last rites as fatalities were on the rise in Delhi. Among the trials and tribulations, the pandemic caused, we see a daughter longing for her father (Who've Lost Loved Ones to Coronavirus); his wife was carrying their second child when she tested positive. COVID took hold of her lungs and she succumbed to the virus. Round-the-clock mass cremations were common. In addition, pictured are families during a funeral of a COVID-19 victim in New Delhi.
