Covid positive woman dies in the parking lot

As India reels under a deadly second wave of coronavirus, countless cases of unspeakable tragedies have emerged from across the country.

A 35-year-old Covid positive woman died in the parking lot of a government-run hospital in Noida on Thursday (April 29,2021), struggling to breathe while her companion begged for a bed. 

Jagriti Gupta, who spent nearly three hours in a car just outside of the state-run GIMS hospital in Noida, was alone in the district, while her two children were with her husband in Madhya Pradesh.

"As her (Jagriti Gupta's) landlord frantically sought assistance, I stood right there. No one, though, paid attention to what he had to say. She died at 3:30 p.m. The staff rushed outside and pronounced her dead when the landlord ran to the reception to announce that she was no longer breathing, " an eyewitness named Sachin told the media about the incident.

Patients are dying on the road in Uttar Pradesh's Noida due to a lack of beds. Families are being forced to return home with their sick loved ones as the district, which is adjacent to Delhi, suffers from a severe lack of beds and oxygen. 

According to official data released on April,30 2021, Noida is one of the worst-affected districts in the state, with over 8,200 active coronavirus cases and 212 deaths. 

As the country fights a tidal wave of Covid cases in this crippling second wave, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath declared last week that his state has no lack of oxygen and that the initial issues with raising the number of hospital beds have been quickly resolved. In reality, however, these assertions have been proven false.

After logging over three lakh cases for nearly a week, India has now set a new global record with over four lakh cases in just 24 hours. As the bodies pile up, patients are battling for hospital beds and oxygen, hospitals are overburdened, and crematoriums are running out of rooms.
