The world’s worst covid-19 outbreak left India without oxygen or hospital beds, generating death records and causing cremations in the streets.
Mexico City (proces.com.mx). In the country with the worst coronavirus outbreak in the world, India’s street cremations, patients without oxygen or drugs in hospitals, and records of new infections and deaths all control India.
In the past 24 hours, 346,000 786 new infections have been reported, bringing the total number of cases to more than 16 million. Only the United States exceeds this number.
In addition, the Ministry of Health also reported 2,624 deaths from covid-19, increasing this number to 189,544.
A large number of infections have left hospitals in states such as New Delhi and Maharashtra without oxygen or beds.
According to the “India Express” report, on Friday night, at least 20 patients in the intensive care unit of the Jaipur Gold Hospital in New Delhi died due to “low oxygen pressure”.
All hospitals are almost out of oxygen. Dr. Sudhanshu Bankata, the executive director of the Batra Hospital in the capital, told New Delhi TV: “Are we running out?”
The Indian government argued that trucks carrying oxygen to the worst-hit cities were turned away and forced to transport the goods to other hospitals. The authorities carried out an operation to transport medical oxygen on trains, military aircraft and trucks.
Moreover, given the large number of deaths, families must wait a few days to incinerate their loved ones, because the crematorium is overflowing or using everything.
This situation has led many people to hold funerals in temporary facilities and even on the street.
