Faced with shortage of oxygen, some hospitals in Delhi on Monday sent out desperate SOS calls to authorities to replenish their dwindling stocks. AAP national spokesperson Raghav Chadha responded to calls and provided immediate help to save many lives.
The AAP leader also appealed to the Centre to ensure delivery of Oxygen to Delhi.
Replying to SOS call of Irene Hospital situated in Kalkaji, he tweeted “It has been taken care of. We have earmarked 8 D-type oxygen cylinders to IRENE Hospital from our Rajghat Response Point. As our oxygen reserves are quickly depleting, we urge Centre to ensure that committed oxygen supply to Delhi is delivered,”
The hospital in the message said that it was left with one hour of Oxygen and 27 of patients are on Oxygen support and seven on high flow supply.
Similarly, Chadha provided four D-type oxygen cylinders from our Rajghat response point to Dharamveer Solanki MultiSpeciality Hospital (Rohini) and averted any tragedy.
“We are in touch with the hospital administration and have allocated four D-type oxygen cylinders from our Rajghat Response Point. We shall spare no effort to address each and every SOS. But we at the Delhi Govt are raising #SOS too. Please give us our allocated share of oxygen,” he said in a tweet.
The AAP leader also made available 10 D-type oxygen cylinders to IBS Hospital in Lajpat Nagar who was running out of Oxygen and lives of 37 were on stake.
“We have rushed 10 D-type oxygen cylinders from our SOS reserves to IBS hospital in Lajpat Nagar, which would help them tide over the crisis. Sincerely hope that with the intervention of judiciary, the Centre will finally be charitable enough to give Delhi its share of oxygen,” he tweeted.
