INDIRAPURAM, INDIA - MAY 02: Patients suffering from Covid-19 are treated with free oxygen at a makeshift clinic outside the Shri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara on May 02, 2021 in Indirapuram, Uttar Pradesh, India. With cases crossing 400,000 a day and with more than 3500 deaths recorded in the last 24 hours, India's Covid-19 crisis is intensifying and shows no signs of easing pressure on the country. A new wave of the pandemic has totally overwhelmed the country's healthcare services and has caused crematoriums to operate day and night as the number of victims continues to spiral out of control.
