The health ministry reported a single-day record 3,293 COVID-19 deaths in the last 24 hours

Multiple funeral pyres of victims of COVID-19 burn at a ground that has been converted into a crematorium for mass cremation in New Delhi, India.

India’s death toll from COVID-19 has surpassed 200,000 people. The health ministry reported a single-day record 3,293 COVID-19 deaths in the last 24 hours, bringing India’s total fatalities to 201,187, as the world’s second.

Hospital’s oxygen have run out and  Crematoriums have spilled over into parking lots. India’s chief of Defense Staff, General Bipin Rawat, said late Monday that oxygen supplies would be released from armed forces reserves and its retired medical personnel would join health facilities to ease the pressure on doctors.
