Indian office-goers wearing protective face masks walk on the street in Mumbai, India, which has the second highest caseload of COVID-19 in world.
The number of confirmed coronavirus infections in India has crossed 5 million, the second highest in the world after the United States, with more than 82,000 related deaths.
Over the past week, experts said the virus has been spreading much faster than in other countries.
The BBC's Yogita Limaye reports from Mumbai.
COVID-19 numbers continue to stack up and bring India's already inadequate medical infrastructure to its knees.
Doctors at public hospitals in Mumbai are now being allowed to isolate for just one day between their duties in COVID and other wards, which puts patients at risk.
Many are questioning why restrictions continue to be eased, including reopening metro rail systems across the country, even as the health crisis is getting worse.
