COVID Support from UK: Two Oxygen plants received by Rajasthan Jhalawar

Two Oxygen Generation plants received by the Government of India as COVID assistance from the UK have reached Rajasthan’s Jhalawar.

 One of these plants will be set up at Satellite Hospital in Ajmer. The second plant will be set up in Jhalawar district. After setting up these plants having 500-liter capacity, the state will get extra medical oxygen for COVID patients.

The plant reached Jhalawar Medical College on Monday with assistance from a six-personnel squad of the eighth battalion of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) that holds the responsibility of transportation and installation of the oxygen generator plants.

The two other plants have been allocated to Satellite hospital, JLN Medical College in Rajasthan's Ajmer and JBC Civil hospital, Kajalgaon in Assam's Chirang, according to a Health Ministry letter, dated May 8.

Jhalawar District Collector Brijmohan Meena expressed pleasure over the arrival of the plant that is capable of generating oxygen for 100 cylinders per day.

It would ensure a "smooth and uninterrupted" supply of oxygen to COVID patients at the medical college, Meena said.

"Jhalawar already has two plants. With the arrival of the new one that will start functioning within next few days, the district's oxygen generation capacity will go up to 240 cylinders per day," he said, adding efforts were on to install oxygen plants in other hospitals to deal with the existing crisis.
