Pressure in India for national lockdown with more than 20 million Covid cases recorded – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Pressure is mounting on India’s government to impose a national lockdown after the country recorded more than 20 million Covid infections.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is facing criticism as widespread shortages of oxygen and hospital beds continue in the worst-affected cities including the capital Delhi.

The country’s most popular sports tournament, the Indian Premier League, has been cancelled after a number of players tested positive.

PLEASE BBC … more coverage of the situation in Andorra.
The cases & deaths per million population are 10 x higher in Andorra.

Pink Ocean Flower May 5, 2021 - 3:58 AM

I don't think that the "Vaccine" will protect anyone. If anything, it may spread the virus further.
