Union HM Amit Shah talks about fight against Covid-19 | Frankly Speaking

On Frankly Speaking with Navika Kumar, significant current issues and pandemic impacts are highligh including the peak last year in September-October with daily infections of slightly less than one lakh in comparison to today, that figure moving toward two and a half lakh a day. The surge this year is stronger than last year. It has been acknowledged across the world that India did well in the handling and planning against the first round of Covid. At one point we didn't have PPE kits. But after the second wave hit several countries, India did not learn from them and prepare. But now in Delhi, Lucknow, Mumbai and Gujarat hospital beds are not available, shortage of oxygen and Remdesivir and vaccine. The ordinary man is bearing the burden of these shortages. To this Amit Shah responded stating that wherever there has been a second and third wave, each new wave has been at least twice the size of the earlier wave. The new variant of the virus spreads quicker. It's less lethal but spreads faster. He further states that our scientists are working on this. It has already been decided to import oxygen. The shortage of oxygen seems to be due to its stocking by some states. Some states have stocked on oxygen, which they should for their people, but this should be done equally. The Prime Minister has taken stock of this. As far as the Remdesivir injection is concerned, the government has held a meeting with the manufacturers and decided to boost its production.
