Many hospitals are now overloaded, many infected people have to be turned away. There is a lack of medical oxygen in the hospital wards because so many people have to be artificially ventilated. Families who care for their loved ones at home are desperate to find oxygen. Thousands of sick people struggle to survive every day.

In the west of India, cyclone "Tauktae" and its consequences are currently making the fight against Corona more difficult. Many people had to leave the region and Covid 19 patients had to be transferred from the hospitals. The corona vaccination campaign was interrupted.

Corona crisis in India: children's health care at risk

UNICEF is now providing emergency aid. Our helpers are on duty all over India to strengthen the health system and to support families in this serious crisis. This is also important because the pandemic has direct consequences for children.

Girls and boys go through a tragedy. Many children lose parents or loved ones who have contracted the virus. UNICEF observes that illegal adoption offers are spreading more and more on social media. "This increases the risk of human trafficking and violence," says Yasmin Haque, head of UNICEF India.

The overburdening of hospitals and health stations also severely affects the supply of girls and boys. UNICEF fears that there will be numerous deaths among children under the age of five because basic medical care is no longer adequately guaranteed.

In addition, the nutrition of girls and boys threatens to be further restricted by the consequences of the corona crisis. Half of the children under the age of five are already malnourished.

UNICEF is now doing everything in its power to ensure that children continue to have access to medical care, social support and education.

The health system in India has come under great pressure from the new corona wave. This also affects the care of children.
