Dozens of bodies have been washing up on the banks of the Ganges river as hospitals and crematoriums across India remain overwhelmed by the country's rampant second wave of Covid-19.

Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, minister of water resources, said in a tweet Tuesday that the central government is seeking an investigation of the unidentified bodies, which are suspected to be of people who have died of Covid-19.

A report by the Press Trust of India on Monday found that people are abandoning bodies of Covid-19 victims in fear of catching the infection themselves.

India posted a record number of Covid-19 deaths Wednesday, bringing the total number to 254,197 and its overall cases to over 23 million, only second after the United States, according to Health Ministry data.

Ankit Gupta, a volunteer who has been supporting lower-income families, migrant workers and the homeless in Delhi by providing them with medical supplies and meals, said that the number of deaths in the capital is severely underreported.

Gupta said, "The correct information about the vaccination is not reaching people via the government, that’s why there’s a lack of trust factor and many people are not registering for the vaccine.”
