New Delhi: With corona wreaking havoc in all countries including China, US and Japan, alarm bells have also been raised in India. The Modi government has already become cautious. The government is trying to ensure that a second wave-like situation does not arise in the country once again.
The entire focus of the government is on the things where there was a mistake last time. During the second wave, there was a crisis of oxygen cylinders in the country.
Thousands of people died due to lack of oxygen. Preparations have started to ensure that such a situation does not arise this time. The Union Health Ministry has written a letter to the states directing them to maintain oxygen supply and PSA oxygen plants.
The Center said in its letter, “The pace of corona infection in the country is very slow and the situation is under control. Despite this, we should be prepared in advance for the upcoming challenge.”
State governments have been instructed to start their mock drills from time to time. Instructions have been given to ensure the availability of liquid medical oxygen in health facilities and uninterrupted supply for their refilling.
The Centre has directed state governments to improve the system of life support systems such as ventilators in hospitals.
