New Delhi, October 14
The Union Health Ministry has initiated the process of importing liquid oxygen as part of its preparedness to meet any unforeseen shortage during the winters when the country may witness an increase in Covid-19 cases leading to a rise in demand for oxygen.
A public sector undertaking floated a global tender on Wednesday on behalf of the Health Ministry for procuring one lakh metric tonne (LMT) of liquid oxygen. The oxygen is being procured for various Central and state government hospitals. — PTI
