Concerns about the health of the Ganges river in India have existed for some time. Now, Covid is presenting a new environmental crisis for the country’s most important water source.


During the second wave of the pandemic, hundreds of bodies have been buried in shallow graves along the banks of the river, near Prayagraj (also known as Allahabad) in northern India.


With the monsoon season about to hit, it is feared that many of these bodies will end up in the river, polluting it even further.
