New Delhi, April 23 (TIWN) The situation in the national capital is constantly deteriorating due to the rapid surge in Covid-19 cases. Doctors are not admitting patients suffering from the virus due to lack of oxygen cylinders in the hospitals as well as due to the non-availability of beds.

The escalating crisis has left several states with an acute shortage of oxygen and hospital beds. Families of patients, camping outside hospitals, have also cited problems with the treatment provided as overburdened staff struggle to cope.  Delhi, which reported its biggest single-day spike on Tuesday with over 28,000 infections, is struggling to provide proper medical treatment to critical patients.  At the city's Rajiv Gandhi Hospital, a woman says she had to plead with folded hands for a bed for her mother.  "I had to plead for a bed with folded hands for my mother at night. I want to ask (Prime Minister) Modi ji, I want to ask (Home Minister) Amit Shah ji, they are campaigning in Bengal... Are they not seeing patients are dying here?" Ms Sadhana told NDTV.  Suraj and Deepak Singh, could not say a final goodbye on a video call to their father. After failing to get admission in four hospitals, their father was taken to Rajiv Gandhi Hospital. After not hearing from the hospital for three days, the brothers were informed about their father's death.
