The COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreck havoc in many countries in the world. Governments have been rendered weak by the uncontrollable number of infections and fatalities.

India in particular has been experiencing record numbers of deaths and infections for the past few weeks which has crippled the economy as well as the health sector. This has led to calls by their leaders to the developed country to lender a hand in trying to control the spiraling numbers.

As if that was not enough, the country has been sent into further sadness after a four storey hospital in Bharuch, Gujarat. The terrible fire began at 1am led to the destruction of property as well as the loss of lives and countless others injured.

At the time of writing the toll stood at 18. 16 of those who died were COVID-19 Patients while the other two were nurses. The fire is thought to have been coursed by a short circuit in the ICU.

This is sad news for the country that has been overwhelmed by the surging numbers of infections. Let's hope and pray that the situation will improve.
