Union Territory of Ladakh will install three oxygen plants by the end of this month. After necessary approvals and site readiness certificates, the Administration is completing civil and mechanical works at the sites. New oxygen plants are proposed at Drass, Padum and Diskit and equipment will be reaching Ladakh shortly.

Ladakh LG RK Mathur reviewed the preparedness of Health Department for COVID handling, infrastructure, procurement of essential equipment and medicines.

Apart from the three oxygen plants, NHPC agreed to provide a Two 500 Litres Per Minute (LPM) oxygen plant for Kargil. A similar capacity plant is proposed to be set up at Leh to augment the oxygen generating capacity from the present 1000 LPM to 2000 LPM.
