The coronavirus pandemic has claimed scores of lives in India with the government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi coming under heavy criticism for its inept handling of the crisis. The government has been unable to roll out the vaccination programme despite the country having to bear the brunt of the deadly virus. Although the government data says that only close to four lakh people have died in the latest wave of the pandemic, a new report by The New York Times speculated that the death toll could even be in in excess of 40 lakh.
