1. Background

The ongoing Covid-19 crisis fuelled by new 2021 strain of the virus has put enormous pressure on existing healthcare infrastructure, including medical logistics, in the NCT of Delhi. A large number of Covid-19 patients need continuous Oxygen support at hospitals and at homes. This sudden increased demand coupled with negligible Oxygen production in the State has necessitated dependence on resources outside Delhi. As the number of patients requiring Oxygen support increased in a very short span of time, the pressure on supply of medical Oxygen to hospitals was significantly strained leading to notable delay in movement of Oxygen from outside Delhi. Though the present situation is better, but a similar crisis may re-occur in future and it is needed to be better equipped to manage such a situation in future.

Medical Oxygen Production Promotion Policy

This policy has been introduced with an aim to make Delhi self-reliant in production of Medical Oxygen to meet with any such crisis/medical emergency in future.
