NEW DELHI: Given the lack of medical oxygen supplies in the country for COVID-19 patients, the Apollo Indraprastha hospitals in Delhi have sounded the alarm that oxygen supplies will likely only last until Wednesday midnight if it doesn’t In a conversation with ANI, P Shivakumar, General Manager of Apollo Indraprastha Hospitals said: « The situation is pretty dire. We have supplies that will probably get us by midnight. If we don’t get refills in time, it can come to a serious crisis.  » «  »

The Apollo Indraprastha hospitals also issued a press release complaining about a disturbed oxygen supply. They said, « The hospital has received several requests from many quarters about the availability of medical oxygen for its patients.

This level is dangerously low as there have been disruptions and delays in the supply chain over the past week. « 

According to the managing director, the continuation of the disrupted or delayed care will have serious consequences for the admitted patients. » Continuation of this disrupted or delayed care will have serious consequences for our patients, especially for the more than 350 oxygen-dependent COVID patients . We work closely with state and regional administrations and our suppliers to improve the availability and timeliness of We urge all state governments and the Center to assist us in ensuring uninterrupted care to avert catastrophic patient-related incidents « said Shivakumar.
