Commonwealth Games village becomes Delhi's 1st COVID centre with own oxygen plant

The oxygen plant can supply oxygen to 18-20 patients simultaneously.

New Delhi, May 3

Delhi has got its first Covid-care centre with its own oxygen plant at the Commonwealth games village sports complex.

The oxygen plant can supply oxygen to 18-20 patients simultaneously.

Dr Anurag Mishra, Clinical Manager at the COVID care centre, told ANI that to overcome the shortage of medical oxygen, oxygen plant has been set up at the Covid care centre itself.

"The shortage of medical oxygen in Delhi is due to the supply chain of the oxygen cylinders. Setting up our own oxygen plant is a great move," Mishra said.

"The plant has been donated by the HCL foundation. We are thankful to them as we no longer depend on a supply chain," he said.

He urged the hospitals to set up their own oxygen plant as it can save many lives.

Several hospitals in Delhi continue to grapple with a shortage of oxygen, as coronavirus cases continue to spike every passing day. On Saturday, 12 COVID-19 patients, including a senior doctor, had died at Delhi's Batra Hospital after the facility ran out of medical oxygen.

Delhi recorded 20,394 new COVID-19 cases and 407 deaths on Sunday. ANI
