The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), which is highly infectious, is caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). It is believed that the disease was first seen in Wuhan, Hubei, China where its outbreak was first identified in December 2019.
This virus has caused a lot of havoc in our lives, with people across India and around the globe largely confined to their homes and businesses and educational institutions all shut down in an attempt to contain the virus.
The first wave in India was still manageable but the second wave is highly deadly and has affected many Indian states like Maharashtra, Delhi, NCR regions, Karnataka, Bihar etc. It is being said that the virus has mutated and become air borne and is quite infectious. The Delhi government and various other state governments announced imposition of a lockdown in the national capital amid second wave of COVID-19 cases in the countryfrom 10.00 pm on April 19 which still continues till May 24 2021.
It has impacted a lot of families who suddenly lost their near and dear ones...and left a lot of people ill with the virus, struggling for oxygen, medicines and basic healthcare infrastructure.
Amidst all this pandemonium, doctors, health-care workers, and medical staff members who are leading the battle against COVID-19 from the front, by putting their own lives at risk with selfless determination for the sake of saving lives, are truly our heroes in these challenging times.
The national registry of Indian Medical Association (IMA) shows that 747 doctors have died of Covid-19 as of April 2021. Dr Jayesh Lele, secretary general of IMA, told The Indian Express that according to their registry, the highest number of such deaths were from Tamil Nadu (89) and West Bengal (80).
