'Most Delhi hospitals will run out of oxygen in 8-12 hours': Manish Sisodia

Delhi sounded the alarm over exacerbating shortage of oxygen on Tuesday.

Manish Sisodia said some hospitals were left with only a few hours of life-saving supplies.

The deputy CM added that oxygen is a crucial tool in the fight against Covid-19 crisis.

Sisodia urged Centre to urgently boost deliveries of oxygen to Delhi hospitals.

โ€œWe have been urging Centre to boost deliveries of oxygen to Delhi hospitals.

No action was taken on our request to increase Delhiโ€™s quota of oxygen supply.

In many Delhi hospitals, medical oxygen is available for next 8-10 hours only.

Oxygen is a crucial tool in the fight against the worsening Covid-19 crisis.

If more oxygen isn't made available urgently, it could affect patients' lives,โ€ he said.

Meanwhile, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital said its oxygen stock was to last till 1am.

The hospital has 485 Covid-19 beds, of which 475 are occupied.
