The situation is getting more worse than last year and seems government has not learnt anything from their mistakes in the past.
Many hospitals still do not have oxygen, bed, medicines, ventilators and leaders are just busy in hiding the data and truth from common public as usual.
Despite collecting billions of funds from public in the name on PM cares, getting relief packages from World Bank, IMF, Deducting the salaries of the staff, there had been no arrangements made by the government in tackling the situation.
Rather our political leaders are more busy in doing political rallies for the elections that too without mask.
The amazing part is that government is busy in hiding their incapability and manipulating the data.
