    Volunteers in India’s western city of Ahmedabad have converted a temple into a 50-bed care centre as the country fights its second coronavirus wave. The surge in infections has strained India’s health system, causing hospitals to face a shortage of beds. Many other religious sites have also offered to house and take care of Covid-19 patients.
