Amid increasing cases, India is now facing a serious problem due to a lack of medical-grade Oxygen for critically ill patients.

Patients started lining up outside hospitals in all major cities in the country. The hospitals have turned them away as they are failing to keep up with the lack of medical supplies and beds.
