India has been reeling from its second wave of COVID 19. More than 300 000 new cases per day have brought the total number of cases to more than 18 million, completely overwhelming the healthcare system.
In Tamil Nadu, almost all districts have a positive rate of over 15%, with over 17 000 fresh cases daily. The state government has imposed a night curfew, closed down all non-essential businesses and facilities, like gyms, and ordered a complete lockdown on Sundays. Grocery stores and transportation services are allowed to operate at a limited capacity.
While we evaluate the best way we can help, VOICE Trust has put a moratorium on all field activities. In the meantime, GiveIndia has launched a mission to create COVID care centers and to boost the oxygen supply to them and to charitable hospitals.
