India's brutal COVID wave spreads to small towns

Patients receive treatment inside a COVID-19 ward of a government-run hospital in Bijnor district, Uttar Pradesh, India, May 11, 2021. The one doctor on duty in the ER in this hospital in Bijnor, a town in India's most populous Uttar Pradesh state, 180 km east of Delhi, can barely attend to the stream of patients that are coming in, in rickety ambulances or in the back of cars.
