● What you were doing when you heard the news?
● Explain how you felt about this piece of international news?
Well, I read newspaper, magazines, watch television to keep myself abreast with the outer world. Global news really catches the attention of the people although international news has no immediate effect in case of a pandemic, this international news is taken seriously by all the Nations. Here I would like to speak about global news about the second wave of COVID-19 and when I heard about it on 10th February 2021 I was taken aback. I thought that the virus had vanished, but it was not like that.
was reading Business Standard Newspaper and when it described the whole incidents about the second wave. I got anxious. When I was reading business-standard then I immediately make a call to my friend to procrastinate the idea of throwing a party in a pub in Chandigarh because it was too risky at that time. I felt very sad knowing that people are suffering greatly even to know that it is more painful than the first wave and is more vulnerable for the children, gasping patients as well as other age groups who have some kinds of diseases.
t the same time, I was surprised that in mid-March the Cricket Board allowed more than one 30,000 fans mostly unmasked, to watch two international cricket games between India and England at Narendra Modi stadium Gujarat and in less than a month things begin to unravel. Tens of thousands of people are losing their lives and it is not the end even now people suffer more due to lack of oxygen, drugs and other tests. It is beyond surreal, what is happening? India second wave was fuelled by people letting their guard down attending marriages, birthday parties and in return getting infections. It seems to me now it’s a doom of this planet.

Question:- Do you think covid-19 second wave is more dangerous than the previous one?
In my point of view, as I have read in Times of India, Business Standard newspaper and many others publish that second wave is more dangerous to the infants and children as they are more vulnerable to this pandemic. Moreover, oldsters are always on the hit list of this pandemic. As per news agencies, it’s more dangerous because it is printed and telecast on television that the infection spreads 4 times quicker than the first wave. The mortality rate is higher than the first wave.
