The Delhi high court on Wednesday lashed out at the Centre for depleting supply of oxygen at many private hospitals in the national capital.
The court was hearing a petition filed by Max Healthcare, which runs many hospitals in Delhi.
Max Hospitals in its petition in Delhi HC stated that its hospital at Patparganj, has currently only 3 hrs of supply of oxygen& if oxygen runs out the life of 400 patients incl 262 Covid patients is under threat.
The judges sought to know that why the Centre isn't diverting oxygen from petroleum and steel industries to give to Covid-19 patients who are in dire need of it.
The bench of justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli said "we are surprised that despite Tuesday's order Centre hasn't done anything."
