Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College hospital at Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) results in a lack of oxygen that is administered to patients. Medical college senior professor Shahid Ali Siddiqui said Wednesday that the hospital had not received a single cylinder of oxygen in the past four days and that we are now completely dependent on our three liquid oxygen production facilities. Two of them are waiting for the delivery of raw materials for the production of oxygen. Siddiqui said 273 patients are being admitted to Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College Hospital. 63 of them are infected with Covid-19 and 140 have symptoms of this infection. The remaining 70 patients, non-covid patients, are also admitted in critical condition and receive oxygen if necessary.

“Two of our liquid oxygen systems in the trauma center have just enough oxygen for a few hours. We assume that we will be supplied with raw materials today. After that, the two systems will produce oxygen,” he said. Siddiqui said the third oxygen facility is in the old university building, where oxygen is produced around the clock.

Meanwhile, AMU Vice Chancellor Professor Tariq Mansoor said on Wednesday that the university would build a new oxygen production facility in the next 30 days. This new facility will also be used to refill oxygen bottles.

Here, Aligarh MP Satish Gautam told reporters that he had spoken to Prime Minister Yogi Adityanath by phone and assured them that oxygen-laden trucks had been dispatched from Bokaro to meet oxygen needs in Aligarh, Mathura and Agra. The MP said the Prime Minister had given assurances that the lack of oxygen would soon be eliminated.
