New Delhi On Tuesday, some hospitals in the national capital also appealed to the authorities for the supply of oxygen and said that their patients are at stake due to the lack of oxygen. For the past few days, hospitals in and around the national capital have been sending SOS (triennial messages) on social media due to medical oxygen shortage.
Meanwhile, Madhukar Rainbow Children’s Hospital in Malviya Nagar alerted about the medical oxygen expiring at around 10:30 pm on Tuesday night and said that the lives of 50 of their patients are in danger.
