Appeal for Oxygen Cylinder:

Industry owners are requested to return their idle Oxygen cylinders to the suppliers for conversion to Medical Oxygen cylinders. At this moment of crisis, this will help in increasing the supply as there is acute shortage of Oxygen cylinders.

We also request Industry owners to convert their Industrial Oxygen Cylinders and lend/donate to Oxygen Suppliers for them to supply to the needy hospitals. SOP for conversion of Industrial cylinders to medical ones can be found in the following URL:

We also urge the general public, suppliers and industries not to hoard cylinders at this time of crisis when everyday patients in critical need are deprived of required Oxygen leading to deaths. We are at a time to show our humanity to help our fellow citizens fighting for their lives.

Appeal on WhatsApp and other forwards and Shares:

There is a huge amount of forwards in circulation with information on various topics such as Oxygen suppliers, hospital beds, covid care, treatment and so on. A high percentage of these forwards are unverified and/or misinformation. At the time of critical need, people resort to all kinds of information handy with them including such forwards. Unverified and misinformation add to tremendous stress and sometimes may lead to wrong actions taken by someone on covid management. We urge to everyone not to forward or share information that are not verified well and you are absolutely convinced that they are genuine, important and useful.
