Air India to deliver oxygen generators to Uttar Pradesh hospitals

Lucknow: In order to augment supply of oxygen in the state, the excise and sugar industry and sugarcane development departments are set to start installation of oxygen generators. The machines will be airlifted by Air India flights and delivered to the hospitals.

The departments have identified hospitals in all 75 districts where the work is to start immediately. A senior official said that the installation has already begun in 27 districts. “About 30 units of the excise department and 45 sugar mills will ensure that in every district, there is at least one community health centre or district hospital with 35-45 beds which will have full-time oxygen supply through oxygen generators. The hospitals are being identified by the district magistrate and chief medical officer of a district. We have written to Air India to airlift these machines and deliver to the hospitals at the earliest,” said the official.
