PM Modi reviews medical oxygen stocks, calls for ramping up production

Apr 16, 2021 17:57 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Amid a steep rise in coronavirus cases, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday undertook a comprehensive review to ensure adequate medical grade oxygen supply in the country. PM Modi suggested that the production of medical oxygen should be scaled up as per capacity of each plant, a government statement said. PM Modi was briefed about the efforts being made by the government to import medical grade oxygen to bridge the supply-demand gap amid an alarming rise in cases. It was discussed that surplus stocks of oxygen supply in steel plants are offered for medical use, the PMO said. Prime Minister Modi was informed that states and transporters have been asked to ensure tankers move round the clock with drivers working in shifts to ensure faster turnaround and adequate capacity to meet the surge in demand.
