Deficit supply of Oxygen to Delhi leading to deaths around 50 patients died last week due to shortage of oxygen.
The directions on oxygen supply came out in a detailed 64-page order passed by Justices DY Chandrachud, LN Rao and S Ravindra Bhat, after their hearing on Friday .
Hearings held in High Court regarding the Oxygen Supply to Capital on which Delhi High Court warned the Centre to ensure that Capital gets the required Quota of Oxygen. Delhi High Court also said that If you can’t supply the allocation today, we will see your explanation on Monday.
The Arvind Kejriwal government has asked the center for supplying around 970 metric tonnes of oxygen per day. The center, however, has only allotted 590 MT (increased from 490 MT on Saturday).
Delhi on Monday recorded over 20000 fresh case and over 400 deaths in the last 24 hours and the active caseload in Delhi is now over 92000 cases.
