Oxygen crisis persists, even paracetamol is getting rare, Delhi HC told

-

New Delhi, May 3 (ILNS): The Delhi High Court today, while hearing petitions regarding the shortage of beds, drugs and oxygen supply amid the COVID-19 pandemic, was told some other truths. The first was that an increase of beds was possible, but this done, without a concomitant increase in the availability of oxygen, would mean that the entire system would anyway collapse.

The other issue that came up before the Bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli today was that while the entire country was striving to get hold of life-saving medicines such as Remdesivir and others, there was actually another looming shortage, of regular use paracetamol, essential in the treatment of Novel Coronavirus.

On the Oxygen issue, Senior Counsel Rahul Mehra, appearing for the Delhi government, explained the pressure. He said, “If these new facilities, as discussed, are started and then there is no Oxygen available for them, when they send an SoS, the entire system will collapse.”

Aseem Chaturvedi said, “The problem, my lord, is there are so many cases where Crocin is prescribed and local chemist is saying I don’t have Crocin, but they are not saying that they have an alternative.” ILNS\SJ\RJ
