The profuse shortage of oxygen across the country due to the pandemic has created gaps in the country’s health infrastructure. With the increased number of cases the requirement of oxygen is on rise and the vacuum of its availability is high. The second wave has furthermore increased the vacuum of oxygen availability at the hospitals despite various attempts been made for its access.
The exponential surge of coronavirus infection over the past few weeks has swamped the health care system that witnessed patients facing many challenges in getting oxygen at the right time thus resulting in lots of deaths at various situations. The dire shortage has turned out to be a major challenge faced by hospitals in many states across the country. Several healthcare centres in Indian cities and towns have run short of the gas leaving the people helpless.
Recently JM Baxi Group supplied Oxygen Cylinders to the states of Delhi, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra. At the time of extreme crises faced again across the country JM Baxi has once again extended its hands to help the needy in the imports of oxygen cylinders through Visakha container Terminal.
The imports are done by ONE line that brought 7×20’ of oxygen laden cylinders from Qingdao on the MDM service “m.v. TRF Kaya” arrived Visakhapatnam Port on 09th July. The unconditional support from the shipping fraternity in carrying these oxygen cylinders across the country is truly commendable. Despite the challenges of the lockdown VCT also continued to render its services through the able support of all the concerned stakeholders. The challenges of the lockdown and the measures taken to overcome did not let to affect the operations at VCT. As we look back, we realise that VCT has worked continuously hassle free ensuring the customers’ requirement is met. This could not have been possible without the continuous support of our esteemed partners – in this case ONE Line taking the lead to import the containers. It is indeed yet another proud moment to VCT and JM Baxi group who have been part of such a noble cause.
