With the second wave of the pandemic gripping India, hospitals across the country are facing a shortage of beds and many states are running out of Remdesivir injections and plasma for coronavirus patients.

These developments come in the backdrop of India reporting its highest single-day covid-19 spike on Saturday as the country logged 2,34,692 new Covid-19 infections.
