Oxygen Mafia

India recorded 3,500 Covid deaths in 24 hours, pushing the death toll to 185,000. 386,452 new cases were reported on Friday. Hospitals are now running out of oxygen. Citizens are dying beside their empty oxygen canisters.
Naturally a black market for oxygen has instantly appeared. Those willing and able to pay more will have no issues finding oxygen in India. In Delhi, people are scrambling to find oxygen. One oxygen cylinder is selling for upwards of 50,000 rupees, or $675, nearly 10 times the normal price.
