Second wave of COVID spawns black mkt for oxygen, drugs

Black marketing during the second wave of Covid-19 meant that a large number of people had to pay a lot more than the actual rate to access health care facilities, a recent survey has found.

A survey of more than 24,000 individuals across the country by Local Circles said that the government should come up with a better mechanism to track the supply of Covid-related drugs, oxygen cylinders, and concentrators via unique identification so that the location of these products can be digitally tracked by manufacturers.
