Oxygen shortage in Delhi amid the rising cases of covid-19 has now been curbed. In fact, the oxygen quota of Delhi has been greatly increased by the central government and oxygen is being transported from many states through trains, tankers and aircraft. Today, Special Express Train from Hapa, Gujarat reached the capital Delhi with 224.67 tonnes of liquid medical oxygen. On the other hand, Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia said that due to the constant focus on the system, the number of corona patients has decreased in Delhi and the covid positivity rate has also come down.
The Government of Delhi is committed to fight the corona and provide better treatment facilities to the infected. In this sequence, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia visited the Covid Care Center located in the Commonwealth Games Village and took a stock of the situation and health facilities there. In this centre, the Deputy Chief Minister interacted with the doctors and took stock of the system. Presently, in view of the short supply of oxygen, an oxygen plant has been set up at this centre. This Covid Care Center has a capacity of 500 beds but due to lack of oxygen, the beds are empty here. The Deputy Chief Minister said that as soon as the supply of oxygen becomes regular, this centre will be run with full capacity.
Sisodia said “our doctors and all the medical staff are saving the lives of people day and night, regardless of their lives, we are proud of them. We salute their spirit. Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that this is a war period. And to fight this, the Delhi government is working on a war footing. He appealed to the public and said that we have to fight together with Corona. He appealed to people to follow the rules of lockdown.”
