Families are left pleading for their relatives who are desperately ill, with some patients left untreated for hours.

On Friday India reported 332,730 new cases of coronavirus, setting a world record for a second day running. Deaths were numbered at 2,263 in 24 hours.

Dr Ramanan Laxminarayin, Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics and Policy in Delhi told the BBC the system was on the verge of collapse and had already collapsed in many places.

    You know, we know that oxygen is not a treatment for covid. Like with all respiratory illnesses, oxygen is the last resort, we also know that ventilators have proven to be more harmful than useful. We know real people in India and they don’t relate to this report. In brief, you are becoming very transparent in the way you report news and only a few may believe it.
