PM Cares has allocated funds for the establishment of 500 medical oxygen plants across the country. There are plans to set up these plants within three months. DRDO through its industries will set up five medical oxygen plants around Delhi within the first week of May.
Corona cases are once again increasing in the country. Along with this, lack of oxygen and beds are constantly being seen for the patients. In this series, now 500 medical oxygen plants in the country will be constructed by DRDO with help from PM Cares Fund. Every day more than three lakh cases of corona infection are coming in the country.
Oxygen shortage in the country
Due to the rise in corona cases in India, there are many states where there is a huge shortage of medical oxygen and hospital beds. The DRDO had said that the transfer of MOP technology would be done to Tata Advance Systems Ltd. of Bangalore and Trident Pneumatics of Coimbatore.
After this, both these companies will set up a medical oxygen plant. These plants can produce 1000 liters of oxygen per minute. It is being told that 500 such medical oxygen plants will be set up across the country.
