Raikot, June 8

To fight the apprehended third wave of Covid-19, the Ludhiana administration has initiated the process for the construction of a pressure swing adsorption oxygen plant at the subdivision-level Civil Hospital at Raikot.

The foundation of the plant was laid by Fatehgarh Sahib MP Dr Amar Singh Boparai during a function held under supervision of Raikot SDM Dr Himanshu Gupta on Monday.

MP Boparai said frequent shortage of medical oxygen had emerged as a major impediment in the treatment of Covid patients during the second wave of the pandemic, which necessitated the establishment of an oxygen generator plant in the subdivision.

Residents of villages falling under Sadhar, Pakhowal, Bassi and Jagraon will be benefitted from the installation of the plant.
