    Mass cremations and funerals have become a grim common occurrence in India as the country’s healthcare and post-mortem systems struggle to cope with a second wave of coroanvirus.

    India reported the world’s highest daily tally of coronavirus cases for the second day on Friday, surpassing 330,000 new cases, as it struggles with a health system in crisis and beset by accidents.

    Deaths in the past 24 hours also jumped to a record 2,263, the health ministry said, while officials across northern and western India, including the capital, New Delhi, warned most hospitals were full and running out of oxygen.
