Chandigarh (Punjab) [India], May 4 (ANI): In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Tuesday called for the allocation of 50 Additional metric tonnes (MT) of liquid medical oxygen (LMO) to the state, amid the oxygen crisis due to the surge in COVID-19.

The chief minister sent separate letters to the prime minister and home minister as the number of COVID patients at different levels of oxygen support in the state rose to 10,000, a press release said.

Expressing deep concern at the imminent loss of life due to the statewide oxygen shortage, Amarinder Singh said with the increasing workload he was unable to increase level 2 and 3 beds. due to the constraints of oxygen availability.

The existing backlog for Punjab of these LMO facilities is 5.6 MT from Panipat, Haryana, 100 MT from Sela Qui, Dehradun, Uttarakhand and 10 MT from Roorkee, he added.

Stressing that the Punjab had now been made clear by the Center that there would likely be an interruption in the supply of LMOs from today to Panipat and Barotiwala, the Chief Minister said this would cause great stress on the condition’s already limited availability of oxygen, causing a medical emergency, including the risk of death for the large number of critically ill patients with regular oxygen supply. The disruption should be avoided, he said, adding that, if necessary, the state should be immediately compensated by an additional nearby source.

The chief minister said that the state government has already requested the state government to allocate 20 additional tankers (suitable for train travel) to allow the regular evacuation of 90 MT LMO from Bokaro on on a daily basis, but had been advised that only two would be provided. , and even those were yet to come.

He urged the prime minister and interior minister to intervene immediately to help resolve the major crisis, the press release said. (ANI)
