India’s hospitals on verge of Covid collapse amid national oxygen shortage

News Correspondent

Hospitals across India have warned that patients are dying because there isn’t enough oxygen – as the number of Covid infections and deaths rose by record levels yet again.

Almost a million cases have now been recorded in just three days – putting already overstretched hospitals under even more strain.

The military is now being deployed in an effort to get oxygen to the worst hit areas – as some say they’re within hours of running out altogether.
