Covid-19 second wave: Rural India records over 50% of the total cases

In the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, rural areas in India have been the worst hit. Over 50% of the total cases recorded in the country are reported to be coming from the hinterland.

This spike in cases makes it imperative for them to ensure that areas with abysmal healthcare infrastructure are properly attended to.
