Visualizing an apocalypse

The positivity rate has rapidly increased as the infection has torn through the country at breakneck speed. There is a huge influx of patients in already full hospitals each day. The rush for beds, for oxygen, for medicines, for food and more has only intensified as people grapple for survival. And then there are so many who don’t make it to a hospital. Some isolate and survive at home while others die before they get that life saving injection or supplemental oxygen. They leave behind grieving families. And in the end, they just end up as a statistic amongst the numerous funeral pyres burning across the city and the country.

It was just the start

of summer but the clouds of

doom came together

Note: It’s gut wrenching to see so many people in India (my home) suffer through this brutal coronavirus wave. Having already lost loved ones, I hope and pray that we all get the courage and strength to get through this.
