In view of shortage of Oxygen supply in the national capital amid the devastating second wave of COVID-19, Delhi government will import 18 Oxygen tankers from Bangkok and 21 ready-to-use Oxygen plants from France to fulfil the need of COVID-19 patients, informed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
"Delhi government decides to import 18 tankers (Oxygen) from Bangkok, they'll start arriving from tomorrow.
We've requested Centre to allow use of Air Force planes for this.
Talks are on, I am very hopeful that talks will be successful.
This will resolve the issue of transportation of Oxygen," said Kejriwal.
He further said, "We are importing 21 ready-to-use Oxygen plants from France.
They can be brought to use immediately.
These will be installed at different hospitals and this will help us in resolving Oxygen crisis in those hospitals." On an average, Delhi is reporting over 20,000 COVID-19 cases every day.
