The second wave has been nothing short of a nightmare for our country. West Bengal, like many large states, is being pummeled by the tsunami of COVID19. The positivity rate as on 18th May is still at 30%+ which is 50% more than the national average. The situation on the ground is bad especially in semi urban & rural areas.
