Oxygen crisis has arisen in Surat district of Gujarat (Gujarat Corona Crisis). There are huge oxygen plants in Surat, in spite of which the lack of oxygen in the city is unfortunate. Private hospitals facing shortage of oxygen have warned to transfer corona infected patients admitted to government hospitals.
At the same time, civil hospitals in Surat have refused to take patients from private hospitals. The private hospital in the district is afraid that if any patients die due to lack of oxygen, then their family members do not sabotage in the hospital. The situation is such that the district administration responsible for the supply of oxygen has also raised its hands.
District administration raised hands
The District Magistrate has said that it cannot be said that how this solution will come out. Circumstances are not under anyone’s control. This statement of DM is going to raise even more concern. If oxygen is not provided soon, then due to lack of oxygen in the city in the coming days, there will be a crisis on the lives of patients.
Let me tell you that the lack of oxygen was not there before in Surat, but for the last two days, this problem has arisen that the supply of oxygen in the government hospital is in proper quantity, but the private hospitals are facing the lack of oxygen. Three private hospitals had oxygen stock till Monday night. When the private hospital administration talked to the District Magistrate in this matter, he got supply of oxygen. This oxygen stock is also up to one day. While another private hospital has only 12 hours of oxygen stock available.
Oxygen supply halted
Surat has a consumption of 225000 liters of oxygen per day, which can increase further. Inox and Arcelone, the two major oxygen producers in Surat, produce 1,70,000 liters of oxygen per day. This entire oxygen is supplied to the Civil and Smear Hospital. Along with this, Linde company is supplying oxygen to Kiran, Mahaveer, Mission and Venus Hospitals in the district. At the same time, two days ago, the Linde company, which produces oxygen in Gujarat and Maharashtra, has reduced the supply. The company has taken this step following the increasing demand for oxygen in Maharashtra. The supply of 50 MT from Maharashtra has been stopped. In such a situation, oxygen is being supplied to private hospitals through an oxygen unit.
