There had been rising deaths in the country in spite of constant initiatives from government to control covid-19. In this regard, requesting the Center to give all conceivable assistance, Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi today that the state may confront lack of oxygen supply because of rising COVID-19 cases and urged to look into the matter as early as a possible.

This solicitation was made after PM Modi, who assembled for a video conference on Wednesday, along with ministers of seven states, including Uddhav Thackeray, to asses COVID-19 situation.

In the high level meet, Modi lauded the work of the state government and said, Maharashtra people battle everything courageously. He insisted CM Uddhav to monitor 20 districts of the state, which are reporting high COVID-19 cases.

Uddhav Thackeray then raised the problem of oxygen shortage in the state and also requested the prices to be slashed down. In Maharashtra, the largest quantity – 235 metric tonne of oxygen out of a total consumption of 953 metric tonne is facilitated to Pune across the state.

As per Maharashtra government oxygen demand and supply report, currently the demand for oxygen in 1,072 COVID-19 hospitals of Maharashtra is 953.21 metric tonne on contrary to the 953.470 metric tonne supply, while 458 metric tonne oxygen, was left out as a balanced stock in numerous hospitals.
