Delhi Government has issued directions for the Covid patients who require oxygen cylinders during the home isolation. The step has been taken to streamline the supply of oxygen and avoid public gathering outside the oxygen cylinder refilling plants.
In an order, Delhi Government has said that all persons requiring oxygen for home isolation can apply on Delhi government portal delhi.gov.in with a valid photo ID, Aadhaar card details and Covid positive report of the patient. The received applications will be scrutinized and the E-passes will be issued.
The District Magistrate will identify dedicated dealers and depots to distribute oxygen cylinders to the individuals. The District Magistrate will ensure that the dealers regularly get their cylinders refilled from the designated refilling plants.
