The country is witnessing a lack of oxygen during the second wave of Corona virus. Due to this, many hospitals in Delhi, Karnataka etc. have lost their lives. Recently, the central government has taken several important steps to overcome the shortage of oxygen. Funds have also been allocated from PM Cares, so that more than 500 medical oxygen plants can be set up. These plants will be installed in almost every district of the country, so that oxygen can be delivered to the patients. DRDO is also vigorously engaged to overcome the shortage of oxygen. DRDO is going to set up five oxygen plants in Delhi and its adjoining areas in the first week of this month (May).
Giving information about this, DRDO said, “PM Cares has allocated funds to set up medical oxygen plants across the country. These plants will be set up within three months. DRDO is going to set up five oxygen plants through its industries in the first week. The central government had announced that 551 PSA (Pressure Swing Adsorption) plants would be set up in government hospitals across the country through the PM Cares Fund.

According to the statement released by the PMO office, in view of the increasing cases of corona infection in the country and the increasing demand for oxygen in the hospitals, the Prime Minister’s Civil Assistance and Emergency Relief Fund (PM Cares) has 551 PSA Therapeutics in the health centers of various states of the country. Oxygen production plants will be set up. At the same time, the lack of oxygen in the national capital Delhi has been happening continuously for the last several days. The Delhi High Court has repeatedly reprimanded the Center and the Kejriwal government for this. The court on Tuesday asked the Center to explain the reasons why contempt proceedings should not be initiated against Kovid-19 patients for not being able to serve the order on supply of oxygen to Delhi. The court said that you can hide your head in the sand like an ostrich, we will not do that. Don’t you know about these things?
