With third Covid wave lurking, go nment looks to ramp up oxygen production
NEW DELHI: The go nment is step up efforts to ramp up oxygen production and supply infrastructure for a possible third wave of Covid-19 and is looking at setting up facilities near large cities such as Delhi and Mumbai as well as creating buffer stocks to meet the requirements in case of a spike.
Some of the measures include advisories on the disuse of certain types of masks to optimise the use and reduce wastage, sources told TOI.
In addition to steps already announced, such as setting up of over 1,200 Pressure Swing Adsorption oxygen generators, the idea is to have the infrastructure to meet nearly half the requirement of the large cities, which had to deal with a large chunk of the cases.
Why you blame chief ministers ?
Oxygen management comes under Modi'. So don't be hypocrite.
Instead of calling Delta variant , we can call it as "Modi variant".
Also, arrange for additional generation of ricity ,fire wood for cremation. Get ready more coffins and clear more land for burials. Let not the bodies rot this time.
Ramp up vaccination rate also....That will soften the impact
Dear PM and team ... Please dont play po itics in this . Please make a web site to declare the o2 capacity in each state/ district / panchayat wise and make a provision for people to highlight if there is any shortage. this will fix the responsivity either on central or state
kya baat hai ... govt woke up early this time ..
Because ions are next year.
yes, before ion rallies, they want to vaccinate people so that thousands can gather without masks ..
once bitten twice shy¡!¡
Bangalore story -- several hundred people died because of non availability of oxygen and ambulance service in second wave,, ?? many died in road,, less hospital beds available, very less ICU facilities,, private hospital treatment charges are extremely very high,, shortage of medicine also, even cremation was in a pathetic condition !??
dear Keju : better please hoist danger signal now itself and raise demand for O2 on long term basis .
arrange for more hospital beds and increase the number of ICU beds so that patients don't die due to lack of these facilities as in the past.
Just few days ago there was news that this third wave is not a matter of concern. No punishment for misguiding public because public memory is short and they do not read all news.
Hope Ma Ganga doesn't see bodies flowing this time and banks remain free from dead bodies.
why there is a need to ramp up when in Delhi high court, Centre submitted affidavit that we have 22k mt oxygen production daily? Was center lying to the public and courts?
If third wave comes, oxygen would be required in big quantity.
No matter what, States are going to put every blame on centre. People are going to roam around and go for picnics and parties.
Target to vaccinate 75% must be met by July 2021.
Kejriwal created panic and made several rich people to hoard oxygen. he must be punished for fraud dr and further worsening the problem.
Why dont you ramp up the vaccination drive instead? Always prevention is better than cure…
With our population, we don’t need to take such steps.
when is the third wave starting ?
