Free, accurate and credible information is a human right during times of crisis

India is currently facing the onslaught of a Covid tsunami and it is going through a humanitarian crisis as a result of negligence and incompetence of its federal and state governments. 

We are witnessing Indian authorities under-report cases count and deaths (by a factor of 5x-15x), clamp down on social media and also threaten healthcare institutions and individuals with imprisonment and financial penalties for disclosing any information which highlights the true scale of the crisis. The BJP party (which runs the central government) is also an expert in spreading misinformation and propaganda to control narratives and discredit any voice of opposition.

Global and Indian media has the responsibility to disseminate fact based news, relevant scientific information and expert opinions freely among the people of India (and the world) to ensure that this crisis is tackled and resolved as quickly and efficiently as possible while minimizing loss of human lives.
