Dr. Vinod Rao, Officer on Special Duty and Education Secretary, consulted with the District Superintendent of Police, Assistant Commissioner of Food and Drug Regulatory Authority as well as representatives of the oxygen supply agencies about the oxygen supply situation.
He said that a control room has been set up in the office of the district superintendent of police for easy transport, distribution and uninterrupted movement of oxygen supply. Care is being taken from the beginning of oxygen supply to the hospital. In order to reduce the time required for refilling of oxygen, the facility of refilling of liquid oxygen in the new field has been considered.
