The hospital authority said they were trying to shift patients who do not require oxygen and those who require more than 7 litres of oxygen.

This comes as several small hospitals in the city are struggling to replenish oxygen supply for COVID-19 patients, even as some big healthcare facilities received fresh stock overnight.

The administration at Shanti Mukund Hospital also put up a notice at the entry gate, reading: “We regret we are stopping admission in hospital because oxygen supply isn’t coming.”

An official from Shanti Mukund Hospital said they have not been able to get in touch with their oxygen supplier.
