Serious epidemiologists are saying that the real India numbers are 5 to 10 times higher than tested, reported and recorded. And we thought it was really bad in USA and the west. Then look at the graphs now!
“Covid isn’t as deadly in our part of the world as it’s in the west” – this complacency doesn’t hold ground anymore!
Today it’s India’s turn – tomorrow it may be Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal, Nigeria, Philippines, Indonesia or any other country that is much more congested and cramped than India!
Do you have enough oxygen supply ready?
Let’s show the pulse oximetry of 46 year old otherwise healthy engineer Shuvankar who was lucky enough to find a seat in a Delhi hospital. The oxygen saturation was hovering between 40 to 60% for days until this 46 year old father of two toddlers died of a cardiac arrest!
Despite family’s repeat pleas – the most hospital could do for him was 6L oxygen! They didn’t have anything more! Friends scoured the world and finally managed a ventilator but it was too late!
Again – don’t see this as India’s problem- whichever country you are in, please see what you are seeing in India as your future problem!
