Delhi Govt: Covid patients in home isolation can book oxygen online

Covid-infected patients living in home isolation in Delhi would now find life-saving oxygen cylinders through online booking. Amid the surge in demand for oxygen cylinders across the national capital, the Delhi Government said on Thursday that it has set up a new system to ensure the smooth availability of cylinders.

In a notification issued by the health department of the Delhi government on Thursday, district authorities have been directed to look after the issue of oxygen supply to the people in home isolation.

As per the Delhi Government’s notification, those needing oxygen for themselves or looking out for their relatives must register on the portal – https://delhi.gov.in. One would have to submit these required documents to book oxygen cylinders online – copies of their Aadhaar, Covid test report, and CT-Scan report if any.

The government’s move has come after witnessing residents struggling in long queues at various refill centres and depots across the city.

All district magistrates have been told to set aside enough officials to sort out the applications and ensure that those eligible receive their e-pass on priority.

Those whose applications are approved will receive the e-pass from the district magistrate stating when, where, at what time, and at which depot they would get the oxygen cylinders, the release said. This will, however, depend on the availability of stocks.
