Oxygen availability

He stated that so far, 20,000 oxygen concentrators have been made available in the state and his government is aiming to make another 20,000 oxygen concentrators available in the coming days for benefit of patients.

As per reports, from the requirement of 1000 tons daily till last week, the demand for medical oxygen has now dropped to 700 tons a day. Upon request of two industry bodies, the CII and IIA, the UP government is now thinking of diverting some of the oxygen for industrial usage.
