  • Global News published this video item, entitled “Indian villagers turn to unlicensed clinics as COVID-19 spreads to countryside” – below is their description.

    At an Indian village near New Delhi, a former hospital worker with no medical education runs a small clinic where he checks oxygen levels and body temperatures of patients lying on makeshift beds.

    Concerns are rising that people in India’s rural areas are being hit hard by COVID-19 infections as poor health infrastructure and a lack of testing risks leaving many of them clueless as to whether they are infected with the coronavirus or just experiencing a regular cough and cold.

    India’s COVID-19 outbreak has stabilized in parts of the country, a government official said, but deaths rose by 4,194 on Saturday and infections were spreading in rural areas where public health services are scarce and already overstretched.

    India reported more than 400,000 COVID-19 infections a day in early May but the numbers have gradually eased. On Saturday, government data showed 257,299 new cases.
