    In India, the number of recorded COVID-19 infections has surpassed 24 million. 4,000 or more deaths were reported for the third consecutive day. Criticism has raged over the government’s handling of the crisis. Everywhere there are shortages of oxygen and medical supplies. Hospitals and medical staff, as well as crematoriums and mortuaries – are all overwhelmed.

    Multiple states have started implementing lockdowns in an attempt to curb the spread. The first few weeks into the second wave saw people struggling desperately to get access to basic medical requirements. Thousands of people died, reportedly because they couldn’t get medical aid on time.

    In many places, social media has served as a lifeline to provide help for people who feel abandoned by their government.
