In a Facebook post, Western Sydney Health has shared pictures of its staff members holding a heart-shaped Indian flag.
“Western Sydney stands in solidarity with our colleagues, friends, family and communities affected by the unfolding COVID-19 situation in India. Support is available to help you navigate this difficult time, and we encourage you to check in with yourself and loved ones,” reads the message by Western Sydney Health.
India is in the grip of a deadly second wave of coronavirus with more than 200,000 deaths.
However, the country recorded a slight drop in new infections on Sunday, with 392,488 cases.
Also, a total of 3,689 deaths were reported on Sunday, bringing the total to 215,542.
Experts, however, believe that these figures are understated and do not represent the real numbers which are estimated to be several times higher.
