The worsening situation in India finally gained some stabilization around September 2020. Usually, when things start getting better, people become careless. The whole world is working towards eliminating this lethal virus, and hence basic list of precautious have been very well laid down but seems to have been very conveniently ignored in those ‘better times’. People were found without masks in public places like parks, restaurants, malls, and social distancing was severely compromised. On the other hand, the government was displaying misleading examples by conducting election campaigns without masks, the state-led conduction of the Kumbh Mela.
The careless attitude of the citizens and the government has resulted in an extremely worst situation where people are losing lives every second due to shortages of oxygen, beds, medicines, and injections. India has reported over 2 million covid cases. Many people are Asymptomatic; some people are showing symptoms of covid yet are tested negative; these two only add up to making the situation even more problematic. India has been exporting vaccines on a large scale, neglecting the unvaccinated sections of its own country. The country stopped exporting vaccines around March in order to prioritize focus on their own people, but things have really gotten out of control. The state government blames the central for shortages of oxygen, while the union governments stated that PM-care funds were allocated by them to build the oxygen plants. The country highly lacks planning and proper implementation, the second deadly wave of the covid could have been prevented only if the Modi government were cautious enough.
