India is experiencing a devastating surge of Covid-19, with a record high of 352,991 new cases and 2,812 deaths recorded in single day on April 25th 2012. Infection rates within India are the highest ever seen – nearly triple last year’s highest rates – while less than 2% of the population has been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

ASF/AWB is coordinating with local counterparts to enable local innovative solutions in order to assist the overwhelmed communities to respond as they deem appropriate in the effort to slow the dramatic spread of the unrelenting disease.
