Centre Has To Supply 700 Tonnes Oxygen To Delhi Everyday: Supreme Court

Delhi’s hospitals have been sending desperate appeals for medical oxygen.

New Delhi:

The central government has to supply 700 metric tonnes of medical oxygen to Delhi everyday till further orders, the Supreme Court said this morning as top hospitals in the national capital struggle to tackle the unprecedented rise in Covid infections.

“When we say 700 metric tonnes, it means (the amount of medical oxygen to be supplied) everyday to Delhi. Please do not drive us to a situation to take coercive steps… We are clarifying that it will be 700 MT everyday,” the top court said in sharp remarks.

This is the third straight day that the shortage of medical oxygen – a key challenge that has emerged in India’s fight against a deadly second Covid wave – was discussed in the top court.
