When asked her what is the difference between last year’s Covid situation and this Covid situation she elaborated that,” last year the people were scared of Covid but today this second wave directly affects the lungs”.
As per my opinion, the government’s decision for lockdown is late. They should have been taken the decision 15 days earlier. If the decision was taken on the right time then today this difficult situation wouldn’t happen, conveyed by Ms.Hetal gala.
