"It has been a very challenging time for students from India, including for the ones already here," said Amita Gupta, deputy director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Clinical Global Health Education.  

Students from India represent 18% of the foreign nationals coming to the U.S. for education, according to the Institute of International Education in New York.  

"COVID has significantly reduced that number and importantly impacted their educational experience and quality of life," said Gupta, who also serves as a professor of infectious diseases at the Johns Hopkins' School of Medicine.

Gupta explained how the doctors in the U.S. have coordinated with counterparts in India during this second surge of cases.
