The world is witnessing a rapid increase in the number of confirmed Coronavirus cases and the death toll. According to the latest updates, the virus has claimed the lives of 16,558 people, while there are almost 262,774 active cases globally.

Recently, an Indian nurse working in Italy had shared an audio message in which she mentions that many of the medics are now forced to remove the ventilator support of aged patients in an attempt to save younger people, who have better chances of survival. Similarly, many other Indians residing in Italy are also sharing their own experiences in the country, trying to convince people in India about the seriousness of the horrifying situations faced by these developed countries.
