If the oxygen supply is not restored immediately, hospitals will be forced to discharge patients,” said Dr Nirmal Choraria. VADODARA/SURAT/AHMEDABAD: The spectre of crippling oxygen shortage threatening to snuff out Covid-19 affected lives is looming large in Gujarat. Growing need of gasping Covid-19 patients has rendered 1,000MT availability of the gas insufficient as hospitals across cities and towns reportedly struggled to treat unabated flow of breathless patients. The state government informed the Gujarat high court on Monday that there are 52,036 Covid patients currently on oxygen support across the state. “With the surge in cases, oxygen demand has risen from 58 MT on March 15 to 1,000 MT on April 24.

IMA also warned of possible law and order situation at these hospitals and sought police support. Meanwhile, ) and Surat Municipal Institute of Medical Education and Research (SMIMER) closed gates on Monday morning due to shortage of beds and ventilators. “There is a shortage of oxygen. We are trying hard to get supply from multiple private suppliers but there is a definite deficit. Difficult to cope up with the deficit at present,” district collector Dhaval Patel told TOI. In districts like Banaskantha, Patan, Gir-Somnath too, doctors complained of oxygen scarcity. “We have 125 beds and have admitted 200 patients needing oxygen. There is no scope to admit anymore patients as oxygen supply is limited," External link

If the oxygen supply is not restored immediately, hospitals will be forced to discharge patients,” said Dr Nirmal Choraria. VADODARA/SURAT/AHMEDABAD: The spectre of crippling oxygen shortage threatening to snuff out Covid-19 affected lives is looming large in Gujarat. Growing need of gasping Covid-19 patients has rendered 1,000MT availability of the gas insufficient as hospitals across cities and towns reportedly struggled to treat unabated flow of breathless patients. The state government informed the Gujarat high court on Monday that there are 52,036 Covid patients currently on oxygen support across the state. “With the surge in cases, oxygen demand has risen from 58 MT on March 15 to 1,000 MT on April 24.
