A hospital in Pune's Pimpri has run out of beds and been forced to provide oxygen support - to patients complaining of breathlessness - in a makeshift triage, or waiting area. Seven oxygen beds have been set up in that space. The Yashwantrao Chavan Memorial Hospital has a total of 400 beds, including 55 in the ICU (intensive care unit). As of today not a single bed is free. Ventilators - to help Covid patients unable to breathe on their own - are in short supply, with only 79 available across Pune.
