The outcry caused by the second wave of Corona in the country is slowly coming to a halt. Corona’s speed can be gauged from the fact that on March 1, there were 12,270 cases in the country. After 67 days i.e. on May 6, this figure increased by 34 times to cross 4.14 lakhs. This was the time when there was an outcry for oxygen, ventilators in the country. People were wandering from rate to rate for drugs like Remadecivir.
After this, the decreasing cases of corona gave a sigh of relief to the people and the government.
