Delhi Health Minister on Thursday said that the situation in the national capital is not very comfortable amid reports of various hospitals running short of oxygen supply. “Situation is different in different hospitals; six hours in some, eight in others 10 in some others. We cannot call this a comfortable situation,” said Jain about the availability of oxygen in Delhi hospitals.
“There is a grave oxygen crisis in Delhi for the last three days. The Centre is making allocations to all states. Delhi’s quota was less than the requirement but has been increased. If the crisis is resolved in a day or two, the number of beds will be increased,” added the minister.
