With a dire situation at hands, stars from both sides of the border are speaking up and encouraging people not to lose hope.
Highlight the gravity of the panicking situation, celebrities jumped in to sensitise people and creating awareness among the masses of the deteriorating condition of the healthcare system that is witnessing a major dip.
As cases in India soar to highest global daily and second highest in total, it is bound to put strain on resources. This is humanity vs the virus. Our battle against covid is also intensifying, but can we share to help our neighbors? #IndiaNeedsOxygen @ImranKhanPTI @SMQureshiPTI

Gut-wrenching visuals from India – the Covid crisis is deepening. Sending prayers that the nation comes out of this.
Please, everyone, mask up. Don’t let the idea that we’re vaccinated (or going to be soon) allow you to let your guard down.
Observe all SOPs. Save lives.
