The Indian state of Kerala is amid its fight against the second wave of Covid 19 pandemic. This time, unfortunately, it appears to be a bigger challenge. With the best of public health systems and a capable leadership, the state had been able to contain the first wave effectively.
Despite elaborate preparations, the increasing infection rate is putting the systems under pressure. The state has adopted drastic measures to contain the spread. There are limits to which the state can augment its healthcare facilities to take on the speed and intensity of this second wave.
We can help the state fill the gaps in critical areas not to overwhelm the systems and resources.
