He also said “The number of COVID-19 patients is rising but there has been acute shortage of beds in the hospital. The patients are struggling to manage the oxygen, that’s why we launched the service,” he added.

“Many people need oxygen but cannot get admitted to the hospital, they can take oxygen in their home”, he said.
