 Why India is facing obstacles to meet the oxygen crisis despite having more allocations than demand.  Many coronavirus patients are dying in hospitals due to untimely delivery.  A Reuters investigation by the British news agency Reuters found that the rationale behind the oxygen transport incident was due to time constraints, bureaucratic laxity and lack of advance planning.


 Oxygen production and demand in India


India now has a daily oxygen production capacity of 7,100 tons, including industrial use.  As of April 12, the country's medical demand for oxygen was only 3,842 tons.


  In 10 days, the government has allocated 6,822 tonnes of liquid oxygen against a total demand of 6,785 tonnes per day in the 20 states most affected by Covid-19 this week, according to the office of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 


 The allocation has been increased to 3,300 tons.  Despite this, why Indian hospitals are suffering from lack of oxygen.

 

 Why is there a lack of oxygen in hospitals?


 Why is the hospital running out of oxygen?

 According to a Reuters report, the main crisis in India now is the timely delivery of oxygen to hospital beds.

  No.  This problem is due to the fact that oxygen production centers are far away and the distribution system is not integrated.

                                  

Several hospitals in Delhi have applied for emergency oxygen

 Several hospitals in Delhi have applied for emergency oxygen supply this week as they do not have enough production capacity. 


 Neighboring states like Delhi like Haryana and Uttar Pradesh have also come under increasing pressure to supply oxygen to patients with Covid-19 as per their demand.


 Recently, oxygen has been supplied by truck from the industrial areas of eastern India to meet the increasing demand in Delhi.


 The reason for the delay in transportation?


 Oxygen is supplied to Delhi from seven distant states.  According to a court document, many of these oxygen production facilities are more than 1,000 kilometers away from Delhi.

                                      

liquid oxygen had to be transported in a few specific tankers.

  A source close to the gas industry told Reuters that due to the dangerous type of oxygen, all liquid oxygen had to be transported in a few specific tankers.  So I want to ensure timely delivery.


 In the recent second wave of coronavirus, hospitals in several Indian states have been hit hard by the oxygen crisis.


  The gas official claimed that some local officials in the area were disrupting the movement of tankers to ensure their own supply.

 

  Due to these restrictions, Delhi received 177 tonnes of oxygen out of the allotted 378 tonnes on Wednesday.  The source told Reuters that Delhi had slowed down its plans to transport oxygen by road.


 India's steps to resolve the oxygen crisis?


 The central government of India has started transporting tankers by rail, where oxygen is most needed to overcome the crisis.  According to a Reuters report, the central government has started working with Linde India, the largest gas company, and others.  


The process of transporting the empty tankers to the production center using the Air Force cargo aircraft is underway.  Later, oxygen is being sent from there by road.

 Meanwhile, 23 mobile oxygen production units are also being purchased from Germany by the Indian Armed Forces.  


Tata Group is buying 24 specialized containers for transporting liquid oxygen.  Several more companies are ready to give oxygen to hospitals.  


The government has also instructed to make tankers used for transporting argon gas and nitrogen suitable for transporting oxygen.


 But experts say these steps are not enough.  As the number of coronavirus cases in the country has tripled in the past few weeks, the capacity to produce and distribute oxygen must be increased.
