    India reported a record high of more than 414,000 new infections and over 3,900 deaths over the past 24 hours. The new figures take the country’s total case count to nearly 21.5 million and total recorded fatalities to over 234,000.

    And there’s no end in sight to this crisis. Hospitals are buckling under the pressure. There is a lack of beds and a lack of staff. But the one factor that has made this second wave more devastating than last year’s emergency is the lack of oxygen.
