The Human Rights Watch organisation has shared some photos of corpses in rural India believed to have been abandoned in what indicated a surge in Covid 19 deaths. The country has been struggling with a more deadly variant that has exposed it to a higher mortality rate compared to other countries in the world.The photos clearly show a humanitarian crisis in the largely populated country but HowItIs Updates wasn't able to verify the authenticity of the organisation's claims. India is known to be a multicultural society which carry out different rituals to the deceased before being buried.However, various videos have been trending where dogs are feasting on bodies hence indicating that they might have been abandoned or buried in shallow graves. Some of their electric crematoriums have collapsed perhaps due to the increasing number of deaths.The new variant has also not spared other countries as they have started recording new infection cases related to it. In Kenya, at least 20 related cases have been reported according to the Ministry of health with some five of them in Kisumu city. A vigorous contact tracing exercise has been initiated to tame it's further spread as measures including burning flights from India are effected.
