A day after Gurgaon’s Artemis Hospital put out an SOS tweet stating they had only three hours of oxygen left for their patients, another private hospital in Gurgaon, Max Hospital, has put out a similar message on the social media platform today, stating it has less than two hours of oxygen supply left and appealed for help.
According to the tweet, the hospital is currently treating 70 Covid patients.
“SOS-Less than 2 hour’s Oxygen supplies at Max Hospital Gurugram and attached Dedicated Covid Centre. Over 70 covid pts admitted across. Supplies expected at 10 am diverted…need urgent help,” states the tweet from the Max Healthcare account.
Several senior officials of the state and country have also been tagged in the message, namely the Officer of the Chief Minister of Haryana, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij, the official handle of the Deputy Commissioner of Gurugram, Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan, the Office of the Prime Minister of India, and Minister of Railways Piyush Goyal.
Until noon, the hospital was still awaiting oxygen supply.

The hospital could finally arrange oor Oxygen from a steel plant in Kashipur, arranging separately for a cylinder to transport the same. The vehicle arrived at the establishment late Friday night.
