India reported the world's highest daily tally of coronavirus infections for a second day on Friday, surpassing 330,000 new cases, as it struggles with a health system overwhelmed by patients and plagued by accidents.
In response, people are bypassing the conventional lines of communication and turning to Twitter to crowdsource help for oxygen cylinders, hospital beds, and other requirements.
Pakistani citizens also rallied for their neighbours and called on the PM to alleviate the situation in India. Prayers and compassionate messages continue to pour in:
