The Mismanagement of COVID 19 Second Wave:

India’s COVID-19 data manipulation Mr. Kishor Mehta struggled to breathe after 4 days of his coronavirus symptom. He could have been saved if adequate health services would have been provided. But the hospital couldn’t admit him because there were no beds available, not a single one. Mr. Mehta would have been alive today if only he could be supported with an oxygen cylinder and a hospital bed.

The indifference and overconfidence of the central government was the primary reason for the unprepared state of the nation. Instead of planning an effective outline to manage the second wave, the ruling party focused on winning the state elections, conducting rallies with hundreds of people without taking any precautions. The numbers of cases surged the most after the elections.

When the first wave seemed to have ended, the healthcare services focused on tackling the other medical emergencies which took a backseat during the first wave. The COVID-19 facilities were turned back to facilitate non-COVID medical emergencies.

Increase of oxygen export and 193 million doses of vaccines to other countries, justifying this action by saying India was in the ‘Endgame’ of the Pandemic point towards the disastrous management of a fatal pandemic due to which thousands of lives were lost.
