Oxygen shortage: IAF airlifts tankers to ramp up supply

Apr 23, 2021 14:21 IST | By Editorji News Desk

As India battles a severe second wave of Covid-19, the Indian Air Force has pitched in to assist the nation in fighting back against the virus surge.

Amid the continue shortage of oxygen across the country which has left Covid patients gasping for breath, IAF has deputed its C-17 and IL-76 transport aircraft to airlift oxygen tankers to the filling stations across the country to speed up the distribution of oxygen cylinders.

On Friday, the IAF jets airlifted cryogenic oxygen containers from Air Force Station Hindan to Panagarh for recharging.
