ASIA/INDIA – The Indian Bishops: closeness to the population affected by the pandemic; the government is clearly responsible – Agenzia Fides

Archbishop Prakash Mallavarapu, President of the Health Commission of the Indian Bishops’ Conference (CBCI), explains to Fides: “It can be said that the main cause of this tragic situation is the complacency of the government and the lack of conscience public. Negligence is putting a strain on everyone while the country struggles with a record rise in infections”. In fact, India has exported its more than 60 million Covid vaccines to 84 countries, while the country’s vaccination centers suffer from vaccine shortages. “Certainly there has been a great error of evaluation by the government and the general public: little attention has been paid to the rules on social distancing, while the state machine has ignored the application of the rules”, said Archbishop Mallavarapu.
