In another report, Health Minister Eatala Rajender confirmed that as of now there is no issue regarding oxygen cylinders but with the increase in cases, Telangana could soon run into shortage.
As of now, there was no shortage reported in the state as the government was keeping a check ensuring, the cylinders don’t run out. But looking at the situation and the rise in the number of COVID patients at the hospitals, a shortage is likely. Rajender urged the hospitals to use oxygen cylinders judiciously and only give them to patients who genuinely need them, ensuring no wastage.
