New Delhi: India witnessed the highest spike of COVID-19 cases with 3,79,257 new infections and 3,645 deaths in the last 24 hours on Thursday.

It was the eighth day in succession that India recorded over 3 lakh cases and over 3,000 casualties for the past two days. There were 3,293 deaths on Wednesday.

According to data, 2,69,507 patients have recovered and 1,83,76,524 people have tested positive so far since the start of the pandemic.

“… India’s cumulative recoveries stand at 1,48,17,371 today. The National Recovery Rate is 82.33 per cent… The National Mortality Rate has been falling and currently stands at 1.12 per cent,” a government statement said on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, hospitals in Delhi continued to face scarcity of oxygen, with the Sehgal Neo Hospitals and Rosewood Hospitals having already raised alarm over their depleting stocks.

“We need Oxygen. One hour of oxygen left for 70 out of 150 patients on O2 support. Latest govt orders removed our old vendor Seth (LMO tank) and assigned Paramount (only cylinder) who can’t supply capacity we need,” Sehgal Neo Hospital said in a series of tweets.

“We are distressed that we have to do this again. We have received so much help. Our staff is working 24X7, but this is the crisis we have faced every few hours for the last 10 days. Please help us save lives and continue to do our work,” it tweeted.

The hospital at Meera Bagh in Paschim Vihar area of west Delhi, said via a statement: “We have allocated over 80 per cent of our beds for Covid patients and have two additional linked hotels with 35 rooms which are fully occupied and are also being used for treatment of Covid patients. We have a total occupancy of 150 patients (including non-Covid patients). 70 out of 150 patients are on medical oxygen support.

“Currently we are operating on a dangerously low supply which can lead to a serious patient incident including loss of life, 13 number of our patients are in the ICU or on ventilator/NIV and their lives will be under threat in case oxygen supply is interrupted.”
