LONDON: Britain has said it will ship more important oxygen equipment to India in its fight against Covid-19, including the Oxygen Factory. It has the ability to produce a high level of oxygen per minute. Three more oxygen production units will be sent to Northern Ireland from additional reserves, each capable of producing 500 liters of oxygen per minute, which is enough for 50 people at a time.
These small factories in the size of a shipping container will be able to meet the widespread demand for oxygen in Indian hospitals to some extent. Oxygen is one of the major needs in India during the second wave of pandemic. “We have all seen horrific images of what is happening in India,” Matt Hancock, Britain’s health minister, told reporters. Everyone who saw the pictures is sad.
“India reminds us that the epidemic is not over yet and it is a sign that we need to be vigilant,” he said.
Britain is constantly helping India
“We are supplying India with 495 oxygen concentrators, 120 non-invasive ventilators and 20 manual ventilators,” said Downing Street, a spokesman for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, referring to the second wave of corona virus in India. On Tuesday morning, the first consignment of 95 oxygen concentrators and 100 veterinarians from the UK arrived in Delhi. PTI
