India: Drowned by the Second Wave

May 25, 2023 | Health, People, Videos

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused immense devastation in India, where the new variant of the virus has spread five times faster than the first wave and is often undetectable by standard PCR tests. The health care system has been pushed to its limits, with hospitals being overwhelmed and medical staff working tirelessly with the constant fear of being infected themselves.

The situation is dire as relatives of those infected rush from hospital to hospital in search of help – but there are no beds for the sick and oxygen has become a scarce resource. People are dying while waiting outside hospitals for treatment, and some hospitals have resorted to suing the government in desperation for more oxygen.

This heartbreaking crisis is captured by ARTE’s documentary film ‘India Suffocating To Death’, which takes a closer look at the frontline of India’s devastating oxygen shortage. It follows families desperately trying to save their loved ones and captures stories from those on the ground, revealing a heartbreaking reality that feels especially relevant today.

We urge everyone to watch this poignant documentary and join us in sending our thoughts and condolences to all those affected by this horrific pandemic. This tragic story needs to be told, so please do take some time out of your day to watch this powerful documentary and help raise awareness about what is happening in India right now.
