Covid is wreaking havoc across the country. Oxygen, proper medical facilities are some of the many challenges that patients face daily. If not for a shortage of oxygen in the country, thousands would be alive now if they got oxygen cylinder in time.
However, in this context, the efforts of a young lad from Hyderabad are now attracting everyone's attention. It assumes importance as people are unable to find medical oxygen even if they are willing to shell out lakhs to save their lives.
