NEW DELHI: Amid rising demand for medical oxygen due to an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases, the Delhi Government on Tuesday announced that it will set up 44 oxygen plants in the national capital within one month.

Addressing a digital press conference here today, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said, “We’re going to set up 44 oxygen plants in Delhi within the next one month – 8 of these are being installed by Centre. The remaining 36 are being installed by Delhi Govt, 21 plants coming from France and 15 plants from within the country itself.”
He said that the Delhi government is importing 21 ready-to-use oxygen plants from France and 18 oxygen tankers from Bangkok.

“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,” said Kejriwal.

“The Delhi government has decided to import 18 oxygen tankers 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’m very hopeful that talks will be successful. This will resolve the issue of transport,” said the Delhi Chief Minister.

“I had written to many industrialists of the country in last four to five days. I had also written to chief ministers and sought help. We are receiving tremendous support, we have received offers from many people. Many of them are helping. I thank everyone who is helping Delhi Govt,” he added.

Kejriwal had earlier today visited the Ramlila Ground to inspect the construction work of an additional COVID Care Centre. He was accompanied by Health Minister Satyendar Jain.

So, around 1200 proper ICU beds will be ready by 10th May,” Kejriwal had said while speaking to reporters aftre his visit to the Ramlila ground.

Delhi is among the ten states that reported 71.68 per cent of the new cases in the country, said the Union Health Ministry on Tuesday.
