On the occasion, Guardian Minister Chhagan Bhujbal said, necessary reserves of medical oxygen should be kept in the hospitals so that there is no shortage of oxygen. Manpower should be made available immediately to the centres where there is a shortage of manpower of doctors and other staff. “Closed ventilators should be started immediately.
