The Union Government has informed that 50 metric tonnes of medical oxygen will be provided by the fertilizer plants on a daily basis in the coming days. This move will augment the medical grade oxygen supply to hospitals in the country.

Mr. Mandaviya asked the fertilizer companies to increase their oxygen production capacities and augment the supply of medical grade oxygen to the hospitals.
