New Delhi, April 22, 2021: Due to the rapid rise in COVID-19 cases, the availability of an adequate and uninterrupted supply of medical oxygen is an important pre-requisite for managing a moderate and severe case of COVID-19 and with the increasing cases, the medical oxygen supply will need to pace with the requirements of the States/UTs.
There were some reports that some states are interfering in the inter-state movement of oxygen-carrying vehicles and many hospitals seek govt of India's help so, on Thursday, the Ministry of Home Affairs released an Order.
In this order they said, "No restriction shall be imposed on the movement of Medical Oxygen between the State and transport authorities shall be instructed to accordingly allow free inter-state movement of oxygen-carrying vehicles. No authority shall attach the oxygen-carrying vehicles passing through the district or areas for making supplies specific to any particular district(s) or areas."
