Chandigarh, September 16

To boost the supply of medical oxygen in three government medical colleges (GMCs), Medical Education and Research Minister Om Prakash Soni today directed the principals of these institutes to strengthen the supply chain and maintain an inventory of 200 cylinders at all times.

Soni directed the oxygen suppliers to ensure smooth supply to the hospitals. He said emphasis should be laid on sanitising the hospitals.

The minister handed over a cheque of Rs 1 crore each to the three principals to meet treatment expenses of Covid-19 patients.

Meanwhile, as the need for oxygen in the hospitals has increased manifold in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak, owners of furnace units in the state claimed they were facing severe shortage of oxygen. — TNS
