Ấn Độ vỡ trận phòng chống Covid-19
tình hình lây nhiễm Covid-19 và tử vong tại Ấn Độ đã khiến cả thế giới sửng sốt,
từ 20/4, ngày nào cũng hơn 300.000 ca nhiễm, ngày 25/4, có thêm 350.000 ca nhiễm...
India’s coronavirus second wave is rapidly sliding into a devastating crisis, with hospitals unbearably full, oxygen supplies running low, desperate people dying in line waiting to see doctors — and mounting evidence that the actual death toll is far higher than officially reported.
Each day, the government reports more than 300,000 new infections, a world record, and India is now seeing more new infections than any other country by far, almost half of all new cases in a global surge.
But experts say those numbers, however staggering (gây sửng sốt; làm choáng, làm kinh ngạc), represent just a fraction (phần nhỏ) of the real reach of the virus’s spread, which has thrown this country into emergency mode. Millions of people refuse to even step outside — their fear of catching the virus is that extreme. Accounts from around the country tell of the sick being left to gasp for air as they wait at chaotic hospitals that are running out of lifesaving oxygen.
The sudden surge in recent weeks, with an insidious (quỷ quyệt, xảo quyệt) newer variant possibly playing a role, is casting increasing doubt on India’s official Covid-19 death toll of nearly 200,000, with more than 2,000 people dying every day.
