The more intense the second wave of coronavirus, the more the cry of oxygen increases. On Wednesday, the Delhi High Court directed the government to provide oxygen, whether by begging or stealing. It is clear that the picture has not changed even after seeing the condition of Mata Chanan Devi Hospital in Delhi. More than two hundred Kovid patients are admitted there. But oxygen is insufficient. There was a lot of wailing as usual. The condition of many small hospitals in the capital is also bad. There is no supply of oxygen.
Corona infection is on the rise all over the country. In this situation, the lack of oxygen in various states, including the capital Delhi, is growing uneasy. The worst situation is in Delhi. Allegedly, the oxygen allotted for Delhi has been sent to other states. The situation has worsened since Wednesday evening. Mata Chanan Devi Hospital ran out of oxygen on Thursday morning. Authorities have been working hard to provide oxygen since nightfall. The situation is still serious even though two doses of oxygen have arrived till the last news.

Other hospitals have similar complaints. Even small 50-bed hospitals have run out of oxygen. The center has made arrangements to fill the oxygen cylinder at a place called Bawana, but it is far from East Delhi. As a result, getting there has become a challenge.
Yesterday, the Delhi High Court reminded the government that the center has a responsibility to save the lives of critically ill citizens. Whether by special corridors or by air, oxygen must be delivered to those in need.
