Delhi’s Madhukar Rainbow Children’s Hospital on Sunday sent a message of depleted oxygen reserves, saying 50 lives, including four newborns, were in danger.

50 people on oxygen support
The official said 50 people, including four newborns, were on oxygen support there. The hospital does not have a tank to store liquid oxygen and relies on the supply of oxygen cylinders from a private vendor. “It has become a daily battle due to lack of uninterrupted supply,” the official said. We need about 125 oxygen cylinders every day. ”
