India has reported the biggest daily rise of coronavirus infections of any country since the pandemic began more than a year ago.
It registered nearly 315,000 new cases in a single day.
The country is in the grips of a vicious second wave, with intensive care wards in the capital on the verge of full capacity.
The BBC's Yogita Limaye reports from Delhi.
With no numbers rising as sharply, COVID-19 is spreading faster here than in any other country around the world.
This is a situation really that we've never witnessed before in this country.
And while the government says it is taking steps to control it, it is taking steps to increase oxygen supply, to have more ventilator beds set up, to have more intensive care beds set up.
The virus is outpacing everything else.
