India: a devastating COVID-19 second wave

India is experiencing an unprecedented and deadly second wave of COVID-19. The number of recorded people newly infected has reached stratospheric proportions. After registering 8.3 million new cases in the past 30 days, India broke another grim record with a whopping 414,188 new cases on 7 May—the highest ever daily count globally. Healthcare facilities and staff across the country are struggling to cope with the surge in cases.

Our local staff in India right now are the real heroes who inspire me today. They are petrified and out of sorts and yet they are out there doing the work, working on the frontlines of this pandemic. I think our locally hired team members don't get enough credit for the fact that they can't get on the plane and come home at some point.
