Varun Sinha, New Delhi: Despite all precautions and efforts, the coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc in the country. Even in the capital Delhi, due to coronavirus, the situation remains serious.
Oxygen shortage also remains a major problem. Meanwhile, the Delhi Arvind Kejriwal Government has requested the Indian Army's help from the Center amid deteriorating conditions.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has said that the Delhi government has sought help from the army for the supply of oxygen. Manish Sisodia wrote a letter to Defense Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday, seeking help from the army.
"We have asked for the most help because we are having a lot of problems with oxygen right now. We have also asked them if the army has a truck to supply oxygen," Manish Sisodia said.
Manish Sisodia has said that the letter said that in the same manner as DRDO has prepared a hospital, more hospitals should be prepared. Army's help has also been sought for other arrangements ranging from oxygen cylinders.
He said that the oxygen supply of the prescribed quota of corona oxygen in Delhi was not received even yesterday. He said that out of 590 metric tonnes on Sunday, only 440 tonnes of oxygen was found. According to the Delhi government, Delhi needs 976 metric tonnes of oxygen.
