A hundred new hospitals will get their own oxygen plants with funds from the PM-CARES fund, the government said on Thursday, amid a surge in coronavirus cases that has battered healthcare services across the country and left several states scrambling for treatment essentials.

Medical oxygen is a critical component in the treatment of Covid-19 patients. The decision was taken at a meeting of the central ‘Empowered Group-2’ on Covid-19. During the meeting, the group took three key decisions to create short and long-term availability of medical oxygen in the country.
