Furthermore, he stated, “India as a nation stood alongside our vulnerable country at our time of need.

The leader of the great nation of India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, understood the plight of his Commonwealth brothers and worked swiftly in making the vaccines possible.”

“With a huge population and a notable strain on its medical system, it is a nation in its darkest hours. As we all know, this coronavirus pandemic has swept through many western nations which have suffered similar loss of lives. Let us all keep the people and management of India in our prayers as they continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic,” he added.

What is the condition of India:

The situation in India is worse than ever. Deaths, cases, and there is no place to bury the dead bodies. The scarcity of Oxygen Cylinders and beds in the hospitals indicates the complexities of the people.

People are terrified and devasted as they are helpless. This pandemic is not less than a natural disaster that causes the massacre of the population. Young, old and adult all are encountering this lethal coronavirus.

Every day, there is an upsurge of 300,000 plus new cases of the virus. Moreover, the front liners are also in danger. Besides this, Saudi Arabia sent oxygen consignment to India as assistance. Several countries are helping India, but the question is when will the situation of COVID-19 will be regulated?
