Corona cases have gained momentum across the country. About 1.5 lakh new cases are coming out every 24 hours. Sadly, we did not learn any lesson from last year and this time also the growing case has affected the health infrastructure of the country. Due to the ever increasing cases, the health system in the largest areas of the country has collapsed.
This is the condition of a government hospital in Bhavnagar, Gujarat. A lot of patients are waiting outside the hospital to be admitted but no answer is being received. The Gujarat government says everything is safe. @vijayrupanibjp @CMOGuj @Nitinbhai_Patel pic.twitter.com/bdbn8MC3LM

Vaccine deficiency started in states
Till now the news was coming from Maharashtra that there is a shortage of corona vaccine. In the same sequence, now Odisha has demanded 15 to 20 lakh additional doses of Kovishield from the central government. Private vaccination has been stopped in many places.
Lack of beds along with vaccine in Maharashtra
Not only the corona vaccine in Maharashtra, but there is also a shortage of beds in hospitals. In this state alone, 60 thousand cases of corona are coming out every day. To deal with the situation, more and more covid-care centers are being opened in rural areas of Maharashtra and beds are being demanded from private hospitals.
While there is strong opposition to the partial lockdown in the state, according to the state health minister, a complete lockdown of at least 2-3 weeks in the state is necessary, only after which the situation will be brought under control.
Cases started increasing in Delhi too
Due to increase in Corona case, there has also been a shortage of beds in the capital Delhi. LNJP and GTB have 500–500 beds more in the hospital.
