In a move to tackle the ongoing wave of Coronavirus infection Arvind Kejriwal led Delhi government has come up with a web portal to supply Oxygen to patients under home isolation.
The portal which went live on Thursday can be accessed through this link http://delhi.gov.in
Those requiring oxygen can apply with a valid photo id, Aadhar card details, Covid positive report and other documents like CT scan report if available, an order by the Delhi government read.
The government has authorised District Magistrates to authorise such vendors who can supply such cylinders to the individuals. Moreover the patients under home isolation will not be directed to refilling plants at any cost.
Based on the stock availability, the district magistrates will issue a pass having the date, time and address of the dealer/depot from where the oxygen cylinder can be issued/exchanged.
The order said a provision of lump-sum allocation of oxygen (to be given through cylinders) for individuals, non-Covid hospitals, nursing homes , ambulances and SOS cylinders of Covid hospitals running on LMO had already been made against re-fillers with each district being assigned a re-filler.
