Citizens rise with Anger in Modi's constituency

India is worst affected by the second wave of coronavirus. India's destructive second wave has pushed the country's total number of infections to 20 million and the death toll to more than 220,000. In Varanasi, patients can no longer get access to hospital beds, oxygen, or ambulances. In the past 10 days, most pharmacies have run out of basic medicines like vitamins, zinc and paracetamol.

Due to the lack of basic medicine, people are even taking expired drugs.They say it's a little less effective, but at least it's something. The citizens of the region are now very angry and are asking where is their Prime minister in the hour of need. 

Varanasi has so far recorded 70,612 infections and 690 deaths. But 46,280 - or 65% - cases were recorded since 1 April. The official Covid death toll for the district hovers most days around 10-11. The tragedy has not terminated at the city of Varanasi: the second wave has enchroached on smaller towns and remote villages in the state.
