If you have followed the news or read the newspapers in the last few days, you have heard about the dramatic and exponential increase in covid infections in India. Hour after hour, the country continues to set terrible records in the number of people, unfortunately, missing due to the virus.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who was born and raised in the country of New Delhi, wanted to draw the attention of fans to the ongoing health crisis, explaining why it is something that must interest and worry everyone and all over the world.
“Why do we have to worry? Why is it so urgent now? I’m in London and I’m hearing from my friends and family in India that hospitals are full to the fullest and that there is no place in intensive care. Ambulances are too busy, oxygen supplies are lacking and crematoriums do mass cremations due to the number of deaths” he began in a video posted to his Instagram account, describing the alarming situation.
“India is my home and India is bleeding. We, as a global community, need to be concerned about this. And I tell you why we have to worry about it: because no one is safe until everyone is safe.”
The 38-year-old actress added that this is not the time to argue: ” I understand that a lot of people feel angry thinking about why we find ourselves in this situation. To why it’s happening. Well, we’re going to take care of it. We will deal with it after we have stopped the urgency.”
In the caption, Priyanka Chopra Jonas added that she and her husband Nick Jonas are contributing donations to hospitals and essential services. He pointed to GiveIndia to fans who wanted to help out, describing it as “the largest organization acting on the ground to provide assistance .“
