Corona Cries :Serious or Crocodile Tears !
The Second wave of Covid-19 has gripped the country in its clasps in the last two months, that every medical scientist is perplexed, how to get citizens out of its grasp. It is beyond anybody’s imagination, how fast its mutations are changing shapes and fatal character. They infections reported now have grown almost five-fold in numbers than it was in the months of January and February 2021. The daily Death figures which had gone below 100 then have multiplied 15 times to 1501 in the last 24 hours. Situation in 10 states including National capital Delhi, financial capital Mumbai, Punjab, Karnataka, Andhra are getting bad to worse.
Although the Central Govt had been exhorting the hospitals, medical staff to provide immediate relief to the patients; vaccination, addition in hospital beds, ambulances and procurement of preventive medicine has been enhanced considerably. Yet the Pandemic in its new Avatar has out-beaten the pace with which facilities are able to match up shooting demand and updation.
The NDA govt. under PM Narendra Modi has ordered import of Russian vaccine Sputnik V, which is likely to arrive in India by the end of this month, there are vivid signs of confusion among the administrative
machinery in the Centre and States !
Negligence on Implementation: Vivid signs of confusion and criminal negligence are visible in every field of the Administration, Society and the public at large. As the experience of last one year had shown limited success through rigid lockdown, implementation of Covid protocol, migration of temporary rural labour and relief measures offered by Centre and State Govts; there was urgent need to mobilize all Govt resources to arrest the spread of Second phase of Corona Wave.
Centre Vs State Cries should stop immediately.
The Central Govt. needs to take control of the entire relief and treatment procedures, distribution of medicines, Vaccines, Ambulances and monitor availability of Hospital Beds. States and opposition parties should play their active and constructive role in meeting the upcoming grave scenario. No Crocodile Tears Please !
All Election schedules, Religious gatherings, social get-togethers and non-essential transportations should be stopped. The Centre needs to call all major political parties and decide a detailed working plan. Implement all decisions with the help of experts, medical professionals and influential independent leaders. No more agitations until the last Corona patient has recovered and reaches his home safely. So that country’s economy is also brought on track.
All essential business, industrial activities be conducted under Covid-19 Protocol and monitored strictly, so that there is no sabotage or willful aberrations to the law.
All regional, political and social issues be put aside and ensure every citizen does his best to combat this deadly Pandemic !
A country of 135 crore should stand solidly to beat the Fierce Virus !
