Most of you are already aware of the covid situation in Delhi. Thousands of people are getting affected and hundreds are dying. The covid patients are being treated badly in hospitals and the claims of govt on the availability of beds are fake. I just need the answer to one basic question which is - What made the govt shut down the whole country when there were barely 100 cases and now remove all the restrictions when the the cases are over 3 lakh. Some of you may think that I’m privileged to be thinking like that and I’m only concerned about the well off sections of the society, but that is not so.
I understand the grievances of the daily wage workers and their concern of dying of hunger, but that is where the govt steps in. The govt provided food to the unemployed in the previous lockdown and can still continue to do so if another strict lockdown is imposed. But by not imposing a strict lockdown, the govt is putting a lot of lives at risk. This coronavirus is affecting everyone, the poor, the middle class and the rich.
The condition in Delhi is critical. The hospital treatment is very expensive and there are many who can’t afford it. Even after paying hefty sums of money , the hospital staff and doctors aren’t willing to attend the patients due to the risk of catching the virus themselves. The dead bodies are being dumped as if they were garbage. Just imagine that this happens to your parents, your children or your neighbours; would you still be so stubborn as to ignore the situation?
I know, even the thought of it can be heart wrenching.
So here I am putting forward my appeal to the government to impose a strict lockdown in Delhi till the cases start declining, but for that I need your support.
The economy can get better later but the people who we’ve lost will never come back. I can’t force you to support me, I can only request you. It’s your call.
