• COVID-19 pandemic

    The 2nd wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has hit India hard and deep. While the Urban geographies continue to struggle with the paucity of hospital beds, medicines and oxygen amongst the many other essentials and as the administrators grapple with the steps to contain the virus by imposing stricter measures to contain human congregation and movement, the condition in the rural areas are well beyond comprehension. India’s rural population have now come under the ambit of the infection and signs of struggle have also started making its’ mark. Lack of awareness, inability/ unwillingness to follow COVID norm, migration, unrestricted movement, lesser no. of tests in addition to the mutant strain of virus may have played detrimental role in sparking on the deadly 2nd wave of COVID in the rural settings. The remote rural areas, apart from lacking adequate healthcare facilities at the primary, block and district levels, also fight with quick and authentic information flow, empathetic caregivers, testing kits, masks and sanitizers, medicines, dry ration and cooked food apart from oxygen supply (in form of both cylinders as well as concentrators), ventilators etc.
