    India is at the epicentre of the coronavirus pandemic, with oxygen shortages and hospitals being overwhelmed.

    The country reported more than 300,000 new coronavirus infections for a 12th straight day on Monday to take its overall number of cases to just shy of 20 million.

    The crisis has motivated people in the UK to try and help people suffering in India. UK-based charity Khalsa Aid has received hundreds of donations from people in the UK that will secure vital oxygen concentrators (OCs) for those suffering in India.

    Watch the video to see the oxygen concentrators being packed for transportation to India.
