    COVID-19 patients in parts of India are camping out to try and get oxygen, which is in extremely short supply as the country’s coronavirus crisis deepens.

    Sky’s Alex Crawford reports from Haryana state, north of Delhi, where doctors and volunteers are treating people under tarpaulins in makeshift hospitals. Many have been there for days, unable to find a medical centre that will take them in and provide the oxygen they so desperately need.
