India hits another grim virus record as oxygen demand jumps

NEW DELHI (AP) — Infections in India hit another grim daily record yesterday as demand for medical oxygen jumped sevenfold and the government denied reports that it was slow in distributing life-saving supplies from abroad.

The number of new confirmed cases breached 400,000 for the second time since the devastating surge began last month. The 412,262 new cases pushed India’s official tally to more than 21 million.
