The COVID tragedy of India

Tuesday, 8 June 2021 - 8:30am to 9:00am

It’s been about 18 months since the World Health Organisation declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. Most nation states have been left to resolve the health, and consequent economic crisis on their own. And some states have fared better than others.


In India, daily COVID transmissions exceed 400,000, and it is commonly held that this is a gross underestimation. Tragic scenes of rivers filled with dead bodies have flooded the international media. And as always, the poor and destitute are hit the hardest.


On today’s program, we speak with social justice movement activist, Sujata, about the unfolding catastrophe in India.

Tuesday 8:30am to 9:00am
A program by and about women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Distributed nationally on the Community Radio Network.
