Apr 29, 2021 12:26 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The US government told its citizens to leave India as soon as possible because of the country’s escalating Covid-19 crisis.
In a Level 4 travel advisory which is the highest issued by the US Department of State citizens were told “not to travel to India or to leave as soon as it is safe to do so.” There are 14 direct daily flights between India and the US and other services that connect through Europe, the department said.
The healthcare system in India is extremely stressed due to the massive surge in Covid-19 cases. The country has seen record spike of over 3 lakh cases daily in the last one week.
Official data on Thursday showed new cases rose by a staggering 379,257 in 24 hours, while 3,645 additional lives were lost
