Early optimism that South Asia might have dodged the worst ravages of the corona... 3

Early optimism that South Asia might have dodged the worst ravages of the coronavirus pandemic has disappeared as soaring infection rates turn the densely populated region into a global hot spot.

After several months trailing the US and western Europe, cases of Covid-19 are surging across South Asia — home to almost a quarter of the world's population — where the virus is wreaking havoc on fragile medical systems and underfunded health agencies are pushed to breaking point.

Overflowing hospitals from Kabul to Dhaka are turning away suspected virus patients, mortuaries are being overwhelmed as cemeteries and crematoria struggle to cope, and desperate families are searching for help for critically ill loved ones.

  1. We must ask our Chinese friends questions about how this virus came. Scientifically these Wild animal markets are breeding ground for viruses. If China does not ban these then the next virus is around the corner. Many viruses are in nature and to avoid them we must change how humans interact with nature and not mess around with it.

  2. Tradegy – It’s very strange that our all history/literature books did not touch deaths of 15 million deaths in Indian region in “1918 spannish flu”.

  3. Chairman WHO Dr. Harsh Vardhan oversees resolution to start investigation against China for covid19.

    Meanwhile Chief Scientist WHO, Dr. Soumya Swaminathan will ensure right information about medicines & vaccines are made available to ppl.

  4. Please write your own article this was published in Bangkok Post yesterday or day before yesterday….Dawn please grow up and work as a mature media house

  5. There was always a bigger risk of many covid19 cases in south asia due to poor and densely populated areas and few and poor managed medical facilities. Adding to the woes are local populations that dont understand the risks the virus poses and the social distancing steps necessary to avoid contact with infected people. The minute the lockdowns are lifted, people storm the markets without any preventive measures take. Covid19 life today is not normal. And we need to understand it now than reap the consequences later.
