The Covid spread is increasing in India and is second only to US. More than one lakh new cases are coming every day. Further, Covid vaccine is in shortage. In many states, the number of dead are so many that even for the cremation of dead bodies, it takes a number of days. In some states, the patients are laid up on the floor due to lack of beds. In some hospitals two patients are put on the same bed. The situation is becoming increasingly critical.

On the one side the central government has to ensure sufficient vaccine to the states, instead of importing the same without any limit. Secondly the people have to take care and implement the protocols laid by the government.

The report that more than 10 lakh pilgrims are reaching Haridwar daily for the Kumbhamela and thousands are becoming positive are disturbing news, Government has to take necessary steps to ease the situation.
