Mumbai: The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has said that the country's commercial capital has enough oxygen reserves to meet the existing Kovid-19 requirements.  In the case of deaths, the country suffered the most damage. All relative oxygen supplies under BMC are now fixed.  The distribution situation is normal,”said BMC Municipal Commissioner I.S.  Chahal said. 


This comes shortly after BMC announced that it would set up 16 oxygen plants in 12 Mumbai hospitals.  It will produce 43 tons of life-saving air per day from the atmosphere.  In another incident, a Western Railway train with 3 oxygen tankers carried 44 tonnes of liquid medium oxygen (LMO) from Hapa in Gujarat to Kalamboli in Maharashtra.


WRWR has so far delivered 10 tankers with 150 tonnes of LMOs from different parts of India to Maharashtra by train, Chief Spokesperson Sumit Thakur said.  Last week, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had asked top industrialists to set up oxygen plants in their factories and elsewhere and to hand over the entire production to the state government to address the oxygen crisis.
