New Delhi: The Delhi government claimed on Wednesday that it was not being supplied oxygen in the quantity allocated by the Center. Which was stated in an official order following a rapid increase in cases of the Corona epidemic. Oxygen will be supplied to hospitals.

We have been allocated a share of 480 MT on 21 April and 490 MT on 25 April, but we are reaching the same quantity. Currently, the allocation is taking into account the number of ICU beds and non-ICU oxygen beds.’
The official order states that the government has been allocated 490 metric tonnes of oxygen and a “wide allocation of oxygen” to hospitals based on bed capacity and oxygen requirement for ICU and non-ICU beds.
