World failed to prevent Covid-19 outbreak from overwhelming India, says Dr Fauci

India has recorded 3,60,960 new Covid-19 cases and 3,293 related deaths in the last 24 hours, according to the ministry of health and family welfare.

Top US infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci has said that countries around the world have failed to provide a global response to coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic to prevent the outbreak from overwhelming India, according to a report by The Guardian. Fauci, the White House’s chief medical adviser, told Guardian Australia that a global response with equity throughout the world was the only way to fight the pandemic.

“And that’s something that, unfortunately, has not been accomplished. Often when you have diseases in which there is a limited amount of intervention, be it therapeutic or prevention, this is something that all the countries that are relatively rich countries or countries that have a higher income have to pay more attention to,” the 80-year-old immunologist was quoted by The Guardian as saying.

India is witnessing an unprecedented public health crisis amid a continued rise in Covid-19 cases and deaths. The ministry of health and family welfare on Wednesday morning announced that India recorded 3,60,960 new Covid-19 cases and 3,293 related deaths in the last 24 hours, setting another new daily global record. India’s total active caseload is more than 29 lakh, which comprises 16.55% of the country’s total positive cases.
