UNICEF Ireland requests donations to help India fight deadly second wave of coronavirus

DUBLIN: UNICEF Ireland has launched a fundraising campaign to help India, which has been ravaged by the deadly second wave of COVID-19. India is in urgent need of life-saving medical equipment, as hospitals across the country are suffering from a severe shortage due to the high volume of COVID-19 patients.

India saw the highest daily number of coronavirus cases since the pandemic began, with 4 million new cases recorded on May 1. A total of 3,29,942 cases were reported on Tuesday, taking the total number of COVID-19 cases to 2,29,92,517. India’s death toll has now reached 2,49,992, with the nation reporting 3,876 deaths on Tuesday. Between May 3 and May 9, India recorded 27,000 deaths – the highest weekly toll ever in the country.

Hospitals and healthcare facilities across the country are collapsing due to the rapid spread of contagious Indian variant. Many Indian hospitals are running out of hospital beds, essential drugs and oxygen cylinders.

India is receiving support from all over the world to fight this deadly wave of COVID-19 infection. Many countries, including Ireland, have donated oxygen concentrators, medicines and other medical devices.
