Delhi hospitals face acute shortage of oxygen.
With everyday growing cases of Coronavirus, Delhi is in a perilous situation due to an acute shortage of oxygen supply. Around 20000 cases of coronavirus infections are reported each day, and the affected condition is alarming.
Originally Delhi hospitals demanded a quota of 590 MT but it's 454 MT that they get against their demand.
Numerous hospitals have desperately called the authorities in the past few days to refill their oxygen stocks since they have been dipping at a very high scale due to an unprecedented situation.
After the Vimhans hospital sent out an SOS around 7 pm on Sunday, AAP MLA Raghav Chadha tweeted, “This is criminal abdication on part of those who were supposed to supply oxygen. However, we are in process of arranging 2MT of LMO for Vihmans from our reserves so that they get through the night. I urge Central Govt to deliver to us the allocated oxygen. We too are raising SOS.”
Managing Director of Aakash healthcare in Dwarka Dr. Aashish Chaudhry said, “With erratic oxygen supply, many a times the pressure to the machines in the ICU drops, we have teams on standby but it does result in the worsening of clinical conditions of some.”
“It has been a constant challenge for the last ten days or so as the need for oxygen soared. We used to need 10 to 12 cylinders of oxygen a day, now we use 90 to 100 cylinders. The government has allotted vendors to us but when we are in need, they might not have supplies. We do high-risk deliveries and many neonates are on ventilators other than Covid-19 patients,” said Dr. Shishir Paul, clinical director of Madhukar Rainbow hospital.
