A few months after the assembly elections in Bihar, the second wave of corona virus started wreaking havoc once again. With the number of cases of infection continuing to increase, the number of people who died due to the epidemic also started picking up. In this hour of crisis, there are a large number of people who have no help in their hands. People struggling with fear and disease want to try to raise their voice against the ‘system’, but then courage is being answered. Amidst the helpless and hopeless, they just
The level of fear due to deaths due to corona infection is such that people are also afraid to cremate their loved ones. Who sacrificed everything in life for him, now do not want to join his last journey. In such a situation, due to desperation, some people sometimes take violent methods in response. Incidents such as sabotage and uproar occur in the hospital. The main reason for this happening is that there is no one to listen to and redress their grievances. There is an emptiness everywhere.
When the opposition raises its voice about the whole matter, the government dismisses it saying that they do not know the ground reality. Emphasizes that they are reviewing the situation daily. On social media too, users raise issues in many ways and say that the government should look at the ground reality instead of taking feedback from the officials.
However, why blame the government alone. In the midst of this epidemic, when there is a shortage of medicines and oxygen in the hospital, there are many people who are not getting rid of black marketing. Turns ‘disaster into opportunity’ to sell oxygen and life-saving drugs. Even essential medicines and vitamin pills are out of stock in many areas of the state capital.

The condition of the healthcare system is so severe that people are afraid to take their patients to a government hospital. Now even private hospitals are no better. The common people have to struggle for the convenience of even an ambulance. If an ambulance was charged three thousand to go from one hospital to another, then many times they were not getting facilities even if they paid more than this. At the same time, the patient had to pay up to Rs 7,000 for an oxygen-rich ambulance.
If there is no bed available in one hospital, then the ambulance driver will demand the same amount of money again to take you to the next hospital. The system is so helpless that controlling things seems beyond its scope. But, there are also some people who are coming forward as helpers, taking all kinds of risks for necessary cooperation.

Former Bihar DGP (Retirate) Abhayanand in his recent Facebook post cited corruption as the root cause of such helplessness. He said in his post, “If there is a single sentence that is at the root of this catastrophe, then it is uninterrupted corruption in the entire government system.” The common man has learned to deal with corruption, its different forms are seen.
But people will forget this havoc as soon as the situation becomes normal. They will not ask whether it was a failure of the government or the democratic system for which we vote. Health, education and infrastructure are also important in this. Which is badly exposed in Bihar during this crisis period. After the first wave of Corona stopped, the government introduced it as its success story. “The victory was declared prematurely,” US epidemiologist Anthony Fauci said in an interview with an Indian newspaper without naming any government.
