As we reported earlier, India has recorded more than 300,000 Covid cases for 12 consecutive days.

Vikas Pandey, our India editor based in Delhi, has been closely following the desperate equipment shortages at hospitals in India's capital and helping to amplify SOS messages on social media.

He spoke to Dr Gautam Singh, who runs the Shri Ram Singh Hospital, about having to turn away sick patients because of oxygen supply issues.

"It's a battle we are fighting every day," he said. "Half of my hospital staff are on the road with cylinders to get them filled every day, going from one place to another."
