    In view of the increased demand for oxygen to save the lives of Corona patients, an elliptical cylindrical tank for storage of liquid oxygen with a storage capacity of 13,000 liters set up in the premises of GMERS Hospital on a war footing. Dr. Vinod Rao, Officer on Special Duty and Education Secretary, applauds the performance of PIU who worked day and night for construction of this tank in record time.

    Currently working as a consultant in Covid regulation, Dr. Minu Patel said, that Sayaji Hospital has a total storage capacity of 40,000 liters of liquid oxygen in two tanks with a storage capacity of 20,000 liters each.  Another tank has been started at Sayaji Hospital from Saturday.

    The liquified oxygen tank with a storage capacity of 13,000 liters has been set up at Gotri Hospital as part of spreading the covid treatment facility.  With the operation of this tank, the storage capacity of liquid oxygen in the two major government hospitals of the city will be increased to 53000 liters.

    Oxygen is very important in the treatment of corona. In normal days the oxygen consumption in the treatment of patients at Gotri Hospital was 1 to 2 tons daily which has increased dramatically to 15 to 18 tons daily in Corona pandemic. The daily consumption at Sayaji Hospital has also increased from 1 to 1.5 tonnes to 11 tonnes. In these circumstances this oxygen storage capacity will be very crucial and useful as life saver. As far as Sayaji Hospital is concerned, it will not need to be increased for about 50 years due to its storage capacity of 40,000 liters of liquid oxygen.
