6:12 pm
a day is a 1000 liters start at one hospital say 20 critically ill patients died because the oxygen delivery was 7 hours late on saturday another had to discharge all of its patients off to atlanta out but finding a hospital bed to free has become almost impossible in the city have been on our order i came here to get my grandfather treated he suffering from covered 19 they are not letting us in we don't understand anything the security guard is saying there is no doctor available here if there is no doctor need the emergency ward then where will we go his oxygen level is dropping alarmingly. india recorded more than 300000 cases for the day on saturday the situation in india is a device stating reminder of what this virus can do and why we must marshal every tool against it in a comprehensive and integrated approach countries including the u.k.
6:13 pm
and china today looking at ways to help india as it sees shortages of beds and medicines oxygen and vaccines and the u.s. chamber of commerce has called on the part of the ministration to release millions of dollars for the sulfate astra zeneca vaccine from storage to ship to india brazil and other countries had a pandemic it said that no one to say until everyone aside elizabeth pradhan al-jazeera new delhi. let's give you a sense of just how rapidly cases have been rising in india putting increasing pressure on its already struggling health care system take a look at that over the past month from the 25th of march india reported just over 60000 new infections compare that to the most recent figure 346000 that's reported on friday now the death toll 291 deaths in a single day were ported just 4 weeks ago on friday it was more than 2 and
6:14 pm
a half 1000 india's total infection numbers a 2nd only to the us that seen nearly $32000000.00 since the start of the pandemic the u.s. also leads with global deaths with brazil and mexico not far behind well in the capital new delhi doctors have been pleading for oxygen to keep their patients survive we spoke to dr pender cole from butter a hospital. the situation in but there are supporters like any other big hospital in the city of delhi really precarious we are using about 8000. 1000 does all folks are. doing because we need it but then unfortunately in the last few days it has been reduced to about 2001500 meters but days coming in with that is that you know patients need to create trouble we are trapped then and discharge them we're telling them to
6:15 pm
find a different hospital if they can they can know we're giving them written instructions that we have short of the supply and when we try to bring up the supply at the supplier who has been supplying oxygen great red for the last 30 years consecutively they have pulled off their telephone cause the county emailed them obviously they don't have any oxygen i think that but in order to be had here let us forget about elections that are forget about rallies let us forget the vote was going to be in which state because that has been going on for the last couple of weeks maybe a month we need to concentrate our energy how to get people oxygen how to use you know special rays in which you can you know make oxygen sup lays the drains on you know special tracks which are you know absolutely not interrupted only and
6:16 pm
a squatted by police because you have to squat them with force is the cause of the demand when did is a so much of demand is a place little people tend to people tend to stop them in. you know give it to us so i think it has to be a c.v.s. multipronged attack on how to get oxygen and what i would oxygen specially. for making it is good you know to augment it as far as possible you just. germany's ending europe is ending and doing. very good it's welcome but we need to an expedient thing so that if we do we're losing people and the number of people dying i think we you know underreporting them that is not there's not going to help us. volunteers have come together in cities across the country to help patients and their families and i at sing kaka is one of them she's part of a citizens' volunteer group helping families affected by cave at 19 she joins us now live on skype from new delhi many thanks for speaking to us on al-jazeera and
6:17 pm
taking the time. you must have so much to you in fact give us an idea off your day how have you been helping people in this crisis. thank you so much for having me. so you know so that like you said there are many more until groups that have come across that responding to the quest from patients you know that i mean in through the school social media and primarily what you know what exists is an information gap where people do not despite the government setting up information portals to you know tools. you know the way to keep people updated with the over time information on bad availability these bottles have not really been functioning nordoff so as have not been responsive in many you know hospitals and there's very little what the nation between hospitals themselves and there's a complete breakdown of their services and that is the information gap that many volunteer groups have been filling you know with of begetting requests for some
6:18 pm
patients for oxygen for accessing ambulance services for finding out about it but if you have hospital beds. and that is what you know that is a service that groups are providing in better fighting information that comes in in better find you know bad oxygen is available to connecting patients to these resources and these services and using whatever you know connections people have whether that is you know doc those in specific hospitals are somebody within the system who can help patients access health. but that is. yes and what i wanted and what is it that you're seeing what are the main challenges you are facing is it the lack of beds is it the lack of oxygen is it the lack of hospitals what is one of the main challenges. the meantime does effacing number one with the state so that people are not able to access testing in 3 to 4 days to be over the book at best and then call it the 3 to 4 days for people to get the test results then that is the challenge of you know accessing
6:19 pm
a doctor who getting the you know tell you whether you need to go to hospital or whether you can be managed at home. facing challenges and getting you know people are facing challenges and accessing doctors who can provide a home get of that is because then of course ambulances to leech hospitals find out that hospital beds available that us of your shortages of i.c.u. beds ventilator beds and oxygen cylinder and oxygen in those and then even when people do get it which are 2 hospitals that are the issues that people are not getting you know particularly good quality of care because health care workers are also all boarded and. so yes these are broadly the issues that people are grappling with how dire is the situation in india because some of the images that we're seeing of people just waiting outside and outside of hospitals in beds dying waiting for a bed to come through some horrifying images what is your experience. i would say the situation is pretty dire and i think the fact that quit has become the national
6:20 pm
health line is telling and it's not just you know individual volunteers and patients and family members who are going to knock it off my head but now we're seeing even large you know private and corporate costs because they can go to a total highlight the fact that they do not have oxygen you know other stations so the situation is extremely you know one aspect of it that they're seen on television is what's happening in hospitals but there is a whole list you know a whole number of cases of people who are not able to access hospitals they are still at home the are not getting the kind of it and follow up that the while and what is happening is that people did not be able to access oxygen to even keep them you know keep patients stable and so what's happening is that patients have you know by the time they reach the hospitals their situation is extremely diet extremely civility and many of these deaths you know would be avoidable if if it were to beat them and oxygen could reach them and you know what we could reach them
6:21 pm
at their home you have voluntary. spoke out in india how would you compare the situation then with the situation now. so i would say that the situation is a lot more desperate to see all at last you haven't even getting called for help it was mostly. you know it was mostly that one question or 2 people in a household had been corrected but this you know is seen in diet how someone is being affected by. their was not such a high the quiet meant for oxygen. you know and and i speak from my experience in delhi you know last if used in delhi there was some level of adam follow up visits that were that were being done by the government to make sure that you know people who are in whole my solution don't get to that extremely critical stage before they have to beat us to the hospital there's still be there really have not seen you know we have not seen this kind of home care being provided to patients. be i'm not
6:22 pm
kidding of course actually seeing taking place. in you know one of the patient has been in touch with and then to sort of contain the by this. in that sense and one more question for you presumably you can help everybody that. that must be very difficult what you've been seeing day to day what kind of emotional impact is this having on you. i mean to be honest i have been taking a mental health day today and yesterday because it is extremely distressing you know and you're speaking to patients and and you know most times we end up providing a lot of emotional support to families and just having to tell people that ok no beds available but they're doing what we can i think that they accept all in your you know many volunteers have also had patients they've been helping die you know people have died right then the beach the hospital right up to getting admitted or in beating it as a hospitals and that is taking mental health stolen people psychosocial look at is not something that the country has evidently emphasized on invest see you know what
6:23 pm
is being left with absolutely no support and having to beach out to each other provide that kind of support to each other you know that a friends who are eating out checking up where you're going are you picking the break so it is extremely distressing you know to not. you know to be so severely limited and not do everything that you can for people of but despite that i would say there's a market floored by you know individual was on the internet coming together people who don't even know the people who are coming together at all who had about cases and i would say you know big hats off to what health care what most who have been so stressed in the past month and despite that you know when we when we need to provide conservations to people you know we've got something from doctors that are doctors who all of the health care workers actually not just doctors you know but health care workers who are doing a hospital duty but at the same time getting that off they are stepping up to provide any consultation and had a counseling services to patients and i think that is simply the market because i
6:24 pm
do not one or the kind of an emotional you know trauma they must be facing rumble king in under the source and under funded system and i had so much thanks for speaking to us on al-jazeera and taking the time to tell us your story in. one of the citizen volunteers in delhi. current of ours deaths are also rising in argentina as hospitals struggle to keep up with the number of patients more than 500 people are now dying every day intensive care beds at one hospital near near when is there is is full and the rest of the facility is almost at capacity doctors say a variant of coded 901st detected in brazil could be behind the sudden rise in cases of the more than often are we have a very high demand on the emergency room doctors on duty are receiving covert non covert patients in a much greater proportion than in the previous weeks which is what the 2nd wave
6:25 pm
employees we are afraid this wave will overwhelm us. let's go live now to who's and when as there is daniel paints a picture of the situation where you are. well i'm getting worse it seems the moment this despite the tight quarantine lockdown measures which were thought to have been fairly successful until this last few weeks as you mentioned about 500 people a day dying a total of 61000 people are dead so far 2800000 people infected in a country of 42000000 the problem really is i think the vaccine simply aren't coming in fast enough president albert often on this has said he's on the phone daily to world leaders to health bodies to the pharmaceutical companies trying to get more vaccines but as of today only about 11 percent of the population have had one vaccine less than 2 percent of had both the vaccines required for the elderly
6:26 pm
the people of honorable people with underlying health problems are being vaccinated but nowhere near quickly enough not as quickly as people would like as i say the quarantine measures. tighter measures in place now that many people resisting the parents have been protesting saying they want their children back at school we've had problems between the national government and the city of when osiris government for instance disagreeing on what kind of measures should be implemented so in general people frustrated impatient want to see an end to this but we're seeing these figures rising and until those vaccines come start arriving here without any clear road to getting out of this current problem. that person one is there is thinking. 53 sailors on board a missing submarine in indonesia and now presumed dead after the 1st deborah from

ships that go to russia and ukraine's eastern ports it's the only way for those ships to get russia says that from tonight in a few hours time for 6 months time for 6 months ukrainian naval vessels will not be able to pass through here to get to cranes eastern ports it essentially cuts off parts of ukraine from its navy russia says these are for military exercises be that these are exercises they suggest are going to go on until the end of october but what essentially is happening is russia cementing its control over this part of the black sea of crimea which is occupied since 2014 and preventing ukraine accessing the hours of sea even though there's a treaty between both countries that says they both should have equal access to that sea and what exactly is happening on the ukrainian border because we've had
6:36 pm
many russian troops there but then the russians said they're going to pull out of is that still happening. yeah the pullout is on the way we passed military vehicles ourselves actually we'll move coming along to crimea this morning the russians say that will be over by may the 1st not every single piece of russian military hardware and every single soldier is leaving the area the russian defense ministry says it's given instructions to warn unit to leave its heavy armored vehicles camp until all this comes about 200 kilometers away from the border in russia from the border with ukraine so russia just making clear that it's able to act. essentially as it wishes in this part of the world and it shown that it has the military capabilities they were exercises the russians but exercises involving more than perhaps 100000 soldiers at one point

6:38 pm
to work with the ukrainian navy and they were saying that that agreement was signed in 2003 and he's now almost redundant because of course we've had a conflict that started in 2014 and russia annexed crimea so the ukrainians are feeling weakened powerless if you like to act and that's despite obviously great international support in rhetoric at least calling for the russians to to maintain freedom of navigation in these very strategically important waters for both countries. israel's army says it struck an observation post belonging to hamas in the gaza strip as well says it was responding to at least 10 rockets which happened fired from the palestinian territory and the west cross border violence in months some were shot down but israel's iron dome and defense system. mung solves iraq's government shutdown most camps for displaced people are
