Is the Second Covid Wave Worst Than First One ?

The world witnessed its worst week since the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic, as it clocked 5.71 million cases last week. Primary driven by surge in India, the weekly global cases have grown sequentially by 8% from 5.3 million from the preceding week. If the surge in cases continue, experts fear that world might see one million COVID-19 cases in a day, in coming weeks. The world has seen a similar increase in the number of deaths, which have touched a new weekly peak of 88,738 now.

As the country’s healthcare system has collapsed, there is a increased talk of global help being provided to India. While Singapore has given four oxygen containers on Saturday, the neighbouring Pakistan has also been offering to help.
