Apr 21, 2021 21:27 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Amid a depleting Oxygen supply, the Centre has roped in the Indian Air Force to airlift oxygen cylinders and essential medicines.

Reports said that IAF has airlifted doctors and nursing staff from Kochi, Mumbai, Vizag and Bengaluru for setting up of a Defence Research and Development Organisation Covid hospital at Delhi.

The force has also airlifted oxygen containers of DRDO from Bengaluru for Covid centres at Delhi.

On Tuesday, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh directed all the defence establishments to setting up of more Covid-19 hospitals, use emergency powers and to bring in retired personnel to tackle the crisis.
