India’s second wave of COVID-19 is causing unprecedented devastation. After reporting less than 15,000 cases a day in April, India logged 300,000 confirmed cases per day through much of May. While the case rate is now declining, the death toll continues to mount, with 350,000 lives lost in the official tally.
Rural areas were hit hardest by the second wave of Covid 19 compared to urban centres. According to the Centre for Science and Environment, 53% of new cases and 52% of deaths in the country last month were recorded in rural districts, which are more likely to face gaps in health infrastructure.
