The impact of Cyclone Amphan was "worse than coronavirus", Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Wednesday. The 3-hour landfall left Kolkata devastated and 3 dead. The chief minister has pegged the damage at ₹1 lakh crore. Asserting that the state "will have to re-build everything", Banerjee appealed the Centre to stay away from politics and give humanitarian help. The districts of the North and South 24 Parganas were the worst hit.
