● An effort is also on to restart the closed Annapurna Oxygen Factory, located in the industrial development area of the district. The North Eastern Railway has supplied 500 oxygen cylinders and we have received 200 cylinders from the Gorakhpur Fertiliser Factory. A bank of 2,000 oxygen cylinders has been set up in the district collectorate for emergency supply to hospitals and needy as well, the DM said.
● Regular supply of oxygen is being maintained to 40 private hospitals that have started admitting Covid-19 patients with a 48-hour oxygen supply, he said.
