The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “India braces for severe cyclone Tauktae amid deadly Covid-19 surge” – below is their description.
The strongest cyclone in over twenty years is set to hit the western Indian state of Gujarat on Monday evening and is causing further disruption to India’s Covid-19 vaccine rollout.
At least 12 people have already died as Cyclone Tauktae brushed past India’s western coast states. The death toll is already expected to be much higher from the “extremely severe” storm as 28 fishing boats are missing in the Arabian Sea, according to an Indian official.
