‘India now producing 10 times more medical oxygen’: PM Modi

 

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing the 77th edition of the Mann Ki Baat programme, said India has ramped up its medical oxygen production by over 10 times to cater to the needs of the country during the pandemic.

“During normal times, India used to produce 900 metric tonnes of liquid medical oxygen in a day. Now, that figure has gone up to about 9,500 metric tonnes every day to supply the life-saving gas to hospitals treating Covid-19 patients,” he added.

His address comes at a time when the country has been recording nearly 2 lakh fresh Covid-19 cases and over 3,000 related deaths every day.
