BBC correspondent Vikas Pandey called Delhi home more than a decade ago – but life in the Indian capital has changed beyond recognition under the deadly second wave of COVID-19 infections.
For more than a month now, people have been desperate to find help for their loved ones amid acute shortages of hospital beds, essential medicines and oxygen. But thousands have died, and many have not received the treatment they need.
Here Vikas Pandey, along with his colleague Anchol Verma, takes us on a journey through town, the daily struggle to find medical care, oxygen cylinders and even a place in the crematorium.
