National geography is one of the edutainment channels that provides knowledge along with entertainment. This channel covers a lot of stories about human lives, foods, animal lives, relation of man and animals, etc. They also film and record events that are rare, special, and difficult. One of such covers in National geography is the oxygen mission by Odisha, entitled in a documentary named as "Fighting the Crisis Together | Mission Oxygen". Oxygen is the one and only essential gas required for breathing in humans.
A lot of people die due to oxygen inefficiency with respiratory ailments like asthma, lung diseases etc,. During this pandemic of Covid-19, one of the major crises was oxygen supply. It is recorded that deaths due to coronavirus increased due to decrease in oxygen supply. At the beginning of the pandemic, it was identified that corona is a type of virus that causes respiratory problems at matured states. This causes death. During initial stages, patients with developed Covid-19 were kept in ventilators as they have problems breathing on their own.
Hence, ventilators act as external oxygen supply to them. During the second wave in 2021, there was a great decrease in oxygen supply. Since then, the government has provided oxygen cylinders made in India to other countries to help them, which resulted in insufficient oxygen supply. Due to this, a lot of people went through the risk of dying, while most of them passed away from their loved ones. Oxygen insufficiency created a huge impact on India, children lost their parents, parents lost their kids, brother and sisters lost siblings.
After many issues, finally the government provided oxygen cylinders to hospitals. Even if they have provided now, does it bring back the lives of people? No, it doesn't. So, to overcome such deaths in future, the Government of Odisha held a massive mission to supply oxygens to hospitals to save lives. This was documented in National geography to appreciate and thanks for their humanity and hard work.
Odisha almost dispatched 28,000 tons of medical oxygen to 17 states of India within a span of two months under Odisha's Police supervision. This documentary, "Fighting the Crisis Together | Mission Oxygen", helps us visualize how all departments joined their hands to fight against the crisis to help needy patients during the pandemic this is an example of the quote: "United we live, divided we fall", and "Unity is Strength".
