Description

In this two part episode of YTWL host River Scholl, speaks with Gandhi Scholar Michael Sonnleitner about his 2020 trip to India and the Indian's government's response to COVID -19.

This time last year, theories about India’s astonishingly low rates of COVID-19 infection included hot weather, natural immunity and the country’s high proportion of young people; some also attributed it to the country’s harsh lockdown. India was doing so well that in megacities like Mumbai and Delhi, officials had begun dismantling temporary COVID-19 facilities.

Fast-forward to now, April 2021, and cases and deaths are soaring, leaving
hospitals running out of oxygen. The shortage of beds and space is so acute that people are dying in car parks waiting to be admitted. Daily rates are currently over 300,000, the world’s highest-ever daily infection rate. - gavi.org
