“A dynamic and straightforward structure for distribution of clinical oxygen in discussion with states and UTs and every one of the partners like pertinent services, producers/providers of fluid oxygen, and so forth was ready.
The dynamic caseload of the state and UT was the essential determinant of oxygen allotment. Different factors, for example, case multiplying rate, accessible clinical foundation, and so on were likewise given due thought,” the answer read.
