India’s hospitals plead for oxygen as country battles world’s worst COVID-19 surge

India reported the world’s highest daily tally of COVID-19 infections for a second day on Friday, surpassing 330,000 new cases, as it struggles with a health system overwhelmed by patients and a lack of oxygen.

Deaths in the past 24 hours also jumped to a record 2,263, the health ministry said.

Officials across northern and western India, including the capital, New Delhi, warned most hospitals were full and running out of oxygen, while major hospitals have been putting up notices saying they have no room for any more patients, and police fanning out to secure oxygen supplies.

"I have been roaming around for a hospital to get my mother admitted since the 21st of April," said one resident. "I have visited all the hospitals in Delhi. They all say the same thing, that beds are not available."

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose government has been criticized for relaxing virus curbs too soon, has asked states to work together to meet the needs for medicine and oxygen, and stop "hoarding and black marketeering".
