Canada urged to return vaccine shipments as India’s COVID-19 crisis deepens

Global News published this video item, entitled “Canada urged to return vaccine shipments as India’s COVID-19 crisis deepens” – below is their description.

WARNING: Video contains scenes which may not be suitable for all viewers. Discretion is advised.

India has recorded its deadliest day in the pandemic on Sunday, with over 3,600 COVID-related fatalities — the fourth straight day deaths in that country were over 3,000.

The devastating second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in India has overwhelmed the country’s hospitals, morgues and crematoriums.

The country added 392,488 new infections on Sunday alone, pushing its total case load to 19.56 million.

The second wave has been driven — in large part — by a new, more transmissible variant of the coronavirus known as B.1.617.

As the country continues to reach grim milestones while medical supplies dwindle, more countries are stepping up to help. Canada itself has already committed $10 million in aid through the Indian Red Cross.

But as Mike Le Couteur, there are also pleas to give back more of the vaccines that were provided by India as their COVID-19 crisis continues to escalate.
