Slouched in wheelchairs, barely able to keep their eyes open, COVID-19 patients at the district hospital in Maharashtra’s Osmanabad get their oxygen fix while more are wheeled in, NDTV reported.

According to the report, The Osmanabad district hospital appears to have run out of beds in the cellphone clips recorded by witnesses and so patients are made to sit on chairs as a handful of nurses and doctors do their best to help as many people as possible.

The district reported 681 new cases and seven deaths in the last 24 hours. With more than 4,300 active cases, Osmanabad was among the districts flagged for issues with its medical oxygen supply.

Maharashtra accounts for 48.57 per cent of the total active caseload of India.

On Sunday, India recorded 1,52,879 fresh COVID-19 cases.

Maharashtra and nine other states of Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan have shown a steep rise in the daily new COVID-19 cases lately and account for 80.92 per cent of the new infections reported in the last 24 hours, the Union Health Ministry said on Sunday.
