India saw yet another alarming spike in Covid cases today with 3.32 lakh fresh infections in the world’s biggest-ever daily rise.

New Delhi:  April 23, 2021 India saw yet another alarming spike in Covid cases today with 3.32 lakh fresh infections in the world’s biggest-ever daily rise. With the country’s healthcare system buckling under the weight of frightening surge, doctors and frontline workers are overburdened as they try to save lives. A doctor shared her experience of being on the frontline amid the battle against Covid. “I’m a first year resident doctor; the first death I ever witnessed was on 30th March 2021-a COVID patient was admitted into our ICU the previous night. His condition was critical, but since he was only in his 40s, I thought he’d pull through. But the next day, he succumbed-I went numb (sic),” Dr Saandhra Sebastian has been quoted as saying by “Humans of Bombay”, which catalogs “the beat of the city, one story at a time”. Her coworkers at the time re-assured her by saying that “2020 was much worse”. “But it didn’t take long for 2021 to supersede 2020. Now, at least 5 critical patients come in everyday; 2-3 of them die on a daily basis,” she stressed. A lesson that she has learnt “the hard way” is that “when you are in the Covid ward, nothing really works,” she said, recalling the death of a 22-year-old patient. “Everyday, his 50-year-old parents would ask me, ‘Will he get better if we feed him fruits and veggies?’ and then they’d reassure themselves by saying, ‘Prayers can do miracles, he’ll never leave us.'”  She has witnessed “the worst in the last two weeks,” the post shared on Facebook, which quotes her, says. “The last words of one of my patients before being taken into the ICU was, ‘I have a 11 and 4 year old at home… I want to live.’ But a few hours later, I had to tell her children that they wouldn’t get to even see her body one last time.”
