Consequences of shortage of oxygen.


Shortage of oxygen after vaccine finally became a top priority and PM Modi chaired a "comprehensive review meeting" as cases are in spike.


Recognised as high burden states, Maharashtra ,MP, Gujarat, Delhi, UP, Karnataka, Tamilnadu, Kerala, Punjab and Rajasthan where there's a shortage of oxygen.


Apart from setting up oxygen plants for new hospitals,the government has decided to import fifty thousand tonnes of medical oxygen which is to be financed from the PM-CARES fund.


The situation has become so ill-boding that any industrial cylinder or tankers used for transportation of nitrogen and argon are being purged to be utilised for transporting oxygen.
