Jalandhar, May 4

In a bid to boost Covid management at the Civil Hospital, the district administration has ordered 25 oxygen concentrators.

Jalandhar Deputy Commissioner Ghanshyam Thori said today they received the first lot of 10 concentrators, which has been handed over to the Civil Hospital. He said an NGO ‘Gill Foundation’ had donated money to the Red Cross Society for this cause.

He said delivery of the remaining machinery was under way. He said these concentrators would reduce oxygen demand at the Civil Hospital and saved oxygen would be diverted to other Covid care facilities.

He lauded Raj Gill, patron of the Gill Foundation, for coming forward to service the humanity. He said efforts of such philanthropists make a difference.

Meanwhile, to further streamline oxygen generation and distribution to hospitals, Additional Deputy Commissioner (Development) Vishesh Sarangal today visited oxygen plant of Indian Air Production located at Jandu Singha. He said owners of the plant were asked to strictly adhere to the government guidelines with respect to oxygen production and distribution as all supplies other than medical institutions have been suspended.

The ADC further directed the plant management to ensure round-the-clock availability of spare parts and mechanics to repair machinery in case of a breakdown.
