How Delhi copes with the Covid… and the Monsoon.
Very heavy monsoon rains hit New Delhi on Wednesday August 19, flooding roads and plunging the Indian capital into chaos. According to the first report of the authorities, the number of dead is already around 1,300.
The monsoon is vital to the densely populated region, revitalizing land and waterways in the midst of torrid summers. But it also causes widespread death and destruction.
In New Delhi, cars and buses were submerged as torrential rains added to traffic problems in the city, which is still at war with the coronavirus pandemic, which has some 20 million inhabitants.
