Covid sweeps India’s Buddhist monasteries

India’s devastating second Covid wave has seen the virus sweep through Buddhist monasteries in the north-east, where most of them are located.

Hundreds of monks have tested positive as they often study, eat and live together, making it hard to contain an outbreak.

India has recorded nearly 30 million cases and more than 380,000 deaths from the virus so far.
