LIVE: Rahul Gandhi says “Third wave is going to hit India. Govt must prepare for it”

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said, the aim of this white paper on COVID19 is not finger-pointing at the government but to help the nation prepare for the third wave of infection. The whole country knows that a third wave will strike.

“It’s clear that management of the first & second wave of COVID was disastrous, & we’ve tried to point out the reasons behind it. I would even go so far as to say that there might be waves even after the third wave of COVID19 as the virus is mutating,” he said.

“Yes, good work has happened yesterday (highest number of vaccines administered) but this is not a series of events. But govt has to make this process work not just for one day but everyday until we’ve vaccinated our whole population,” he said.

Rahul Gandhi said,”It is clear that management of first & second wave of Covid was disastrous, we have tried to point out reasons for it.”

“90% of people who have died could have been saved. The biggest reason for this was the lack of oxygen at the time. While there is no shortage of oxygen in the country. PM’s tears did not save the lives of people but oxygen could have.”

Rahul Gandhi released Cong’s ‘white paper’ on govt’s Covid management, says its purpose is to help nation prepare for third wave of corona.
