This phase of the Covid-19 pandemic is far more widespread and severe than the country saw in 2020.
Hospitals were running out of beds and oxygen supplies as cases and deaths rose exponentially in May 2021, with health services around the country overwhelmed by a sharp rise in demand.
People living in the poorest and most disadvantaged communities are suffering most, with limited access to healthcare. Many who have avoided the virus have been struggling to work during lockdown restrictions and unable to provide for their families.
