TRANSCRIPT

 

BBC News. Hello, I'm Tom Watts. India has recorded for the first time more than 4,000 deaths in one day from the coronavirus. There are fears that the actual number of deaths is much higher and that the current surge of infections, already over 400,000 a day, may not peak until the end of May. The BBC's Devina Gupta who's in Delhi says oxygen shortages are still causing problems. For now, hospitals claim India gets less than half of 700 metric tons that it requires to deal with the current crisis. Delhi's chief minister has so far said oxygen crisis is abating in Delhi and there is being a crackdown on those who have been holding oxygen kits and private entrepreneurs who have been selling them at a higher rate to the public, which is in need at the moment.
