In India, thousands die from COVID-19 every day as the world’s largest spike in cases continues. Occurrences of a respiratory fungal infection have surged as well, fueled by COVID-19. This infection starts in the lungs but can spread to the eyes, jawbone, or even the brain.

Maggie Konstanski of World Concern says India’s healthcare system has become completely overwhelmed. “We are partnering with local communities and with organizations to meet some of the critical needs. We are working to provide direct health support to hospitals and health centers serving in poor areas where people may not have as much access to quality health care. [Our goal is] to make sure that they have the resources that they need in order to deal with this increased demand on their services.”
