    Authorities in India are scrambling to bolster the health care infrastructure as the latest wave of coronavirus infections stretches hospitals to breaking point. Delhi’s government hospitals reported they only had enough oxygen to last another eight to 24 hours while some private ones had enough for just four or five hours.
