For the last few days, India has been recording above 3 lakh fresh COVID-19 cases, making it the highest single-day count in any country so far.
Many COVID-19 patients have died due to the unavailability of medical oxygen and lack of beds at the hospitals.
Earlier, #IndiaNeedsOxygen was trending in Pakistan on Twitter, as thousands of users asked the Pakistani PM to help India in the crises.
