New Delhi: Global icon Priyanka Chopra has shared a new video on her Instagram handle, letting her fans and followers know of how badly the second wave of Covid-19 has affected India. Alongside video, Priyanka wrote, “The battle to stop the ravaging effects of Covid-19 in India still continues unabated. Your contributions to @give_india will make a huge, tangible difference! Your contributions will save lives #TogetherForIndia @give_india Click the link in bio to donate.” In the video, patients are seen struggling to find hospital beds and oxygen cylinders, while medical staff talks of all kinds of shortages.
Earlier Priyanka posted another video. In the video, the actress can be seen saying, “Why do we need to care? Why is it so urgent right now? I am sitting in London and hearing from my friends and family in India about how hospitals are at capacity, there are no rooms in ICUs, ambulances are too busy, oxygen supply is less, crematoriums having mass cremations because the volume of death is so much. India is my home and India is bleeding.”
“We, as a global community, need to care. And I’ll tell you why we need to care – because unless everyone is safe, no one is safe. So, please use your resources and focus your energy on helping stop this pandemic. Please donate. I understand a lot of people must be angry and thinking about, ‘Why are we in this place in the first place? Why is this happening?’ We will address that but after we stop the urgency. Please donate and please use your resources as much as you can. India needs you,” she added. “India, my home, is suffering the world’s worst Covid crisis, and we all need to help! People are dying in record numbers. There is illness everywhere, and it’s only continuing to spread and kill at great speed and scale,” she wrote alongside the clip.
