Izhaar Hussain Shaikh, center, an ambulance driver who works for HelpNow, an initiative to help the stretched services of first responders, takes a deep breathe as he waits for hours outside a hospital to admit a COVID-19 patient in Mumbai, India May 29, 2020. It’s an exhausting job and Shaikh's daily shifts are grueling, sometimes even stretching to 16 hours. For a city that has a history of shortage of ambulances and where coronavirus pandemic has claimed hundreds of lives, putting the health care system under immense strain, every help counts.
