Gut-wrenching visuals from India – the Covid crisis is deepening. Sending prayers that the nation comes out of this.— Osman Khalid Butt (@aClockworkObi) April 23, 2021
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.
Extremely saddened by upsetting news and videos coming from India. Please remember that you are in our thoughts and prayers. @SAFoundation offers its support in this testing time. #HopeNotOut #WeAreInThisTogether— Shahid Afridi (@SAfridiOfficial) April 24, 2021
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— Momina Mustehsan (@MominaMustehsan) April 23, 2021
