‘Disowned’: family says pleas for help ignored as Australian man dies of Covid-19 in IndiaDaughter of 59-year-old criticises consular officials’ response and says her mother has been abandoned by her own government A man runs to escape heat and flames from multiple funeral pyres of Covid-19 victims at a crematorium in the outskirts of New Delhi.
