12:02 pm
a ton during different parts of the day we need 5 tons of oxygen every day only we know how difficult it is for us to get by through the evening we are not even having enough sleep at night because of the crisis i would like to thank the police and the government for doing the best they can but it is not enough of a serious elizabeth reports from new delhi. we had a makeshift code in 19 center that has just opened up to cater to the very large numbers of people in delhi who can't find a hospital beds because hospitals are completely full it's open to 500 beds with oxygen supply and ellie's leaders said that they'll be adding hundreds more intensive care unit beds they've even got the entire tibetan border police providing medical personnel to help out here despite all of that we are seeing distraught family members coming here as they have been going to hospitals but even here they are having trouble admitting their loved ones because even here they're
12:03 pm
being told they need referrals they need to be free register and that is because of the rush that is everywhere in the city the center was actually opened for the 1st time last year when during the peak of the 1st wave it was dismantled a few months later when cases came down cases go as low as 100 to 200 less than just 2 months ago in delhi now there are more than 20000 cases in delhi we're seeing some of the numbers that i don't think a matter of fact in other states and despite all of that there was a large election taking place in the state of west bengal today the capital calcutta recording very high 50 percent positivity rate and yet elections are going on there as they have in the last few months in 4 states with a madrassa high court saying india's election commission on monday saying that the election commission is single handedly responsible for the 2nd wave of the coronavirus in india for allowing such large gatherings to go ahead and list
12:04 pm
mentioned that despite the surge in section numbers more than 8000000 people in west bengal in an assembly election today the 7th phase of polls began in the eastern states on monday well then 14000 cases and 59 deaths were reported on saturday. president biden says that the u.s. will help india just as it helped america through its worst moments of the outbreak is chief medical advisor dr anthony found she spoke to a.b.c. news as the white house announced that it will immediately send medical and protective gear as well as war materials for producing vaccines there's discussions about really ramping up what we can do on the ground oxygen supplies drugs tests p p as well as taking a look in the intermediate and long run about how we can get vaccines to these individuals both immediately now as well as in the situation where you help them to be able to essentially make vaccines themselves more for mount
12:05 pm
a serious political hay in in washington. well the biden ministration has been under increasing pressure to take these steps especially after thursday the state department spokesperson asked about sending aid to india said that they were focusing on vaccinating americans that was their priority but now we know that they are going to send some supplies we know this because the white house put out a statement reading out a call between the national security advisor jake sullivan in his counterpart now keep in mind there is a ban in the united states for acts 14 any sort of ingredient that goes into making these coated vaccines so this statement is very carefully worded it says that they have found a source they have found a supply source for helping to make that vaccine it doesn't say that it's u.s. based or where it's from but it goes on to list a couple of other things like you mentioned that they'll be sending in such as personal protective gear testing kits they're going to send some therapeutics of
12:06 pm
medicine that we know can help treat severe covert cases and there's an inch of health experts so one of the issues here is they don't say how much of these supplies they're going to send they say they're going to work generating oxygen capacity but doesn't say exactly how that's going to work or what they're going to do for this urgent need and there's another source of criticism now facing the biden ministration the u.s. has the technology obviously to make pfizer the madonna vaccine the johnson and johnson there is pressure for him to relax intellectual property rights and the patents and to share that technology with the world so they can make their own vaccine that is something he said it would be the humane thing to do when he was running for president but so far they are just only say that they are considering whether to take those steps it's obvious on the in the pharmaceutical industry is against but that is something that the biden mr ation is going to continue to be asked to do as the spikes across the globe. the united nations children's fund says
