Indian Authorities Call For Help From Army As Delhi Battles Increased COVID Cases

Indian authorities in Delhi have called for help from the army as the city grapples with a brutal second wave of COVID-19 cases.   The government wants the army to operate COVID-19 care facilities and intensive care units.   Hospitals in the city are in crisis, with intensive care beds full and an acute shortage of medical oxygen.   Delhi Chief  Minister Arvind Kejriwal has repeatedly said the city is not getting enough oxygen from the federal government, which allocates oxygen quotas to states.   But federal officials deny there are shortages, saying the challenge has come from transportation.   India has recorded close to 20 million cases since the start of the outbreak.   Within the last two weeks, the country has recorded 300,000 new cases a day.
