India is reeling under the latest Covid spike, recording over 400,000 new cases each day. Hospitals and medical facilities are overrun with no beds or oxygen available even for critically ill patients. Some hospitals are sending patients home because of lack of oxygen.
For more, KCBS Radio news anchor Lisa Chan spoke with Kanika Mediratta, a Bay Area Resident who has started an initiative to send oxygen concentrators and other medical supplies to India. In partnership with her husband, Kanika is joining forces with NGOS to raise funds, identify suppliers, and distribute necessities in India.
