“Therefore, our primary objective would be to supplement their efforts by funding the establishment of an oxygen plant. We plan to set up an oxygen plant that can produce 150 litres of oxygen per minute and can serve around 20-30 beds at a time. It is to be set up at the Commonwealth Games Centre, which has been converted into a 500-bed free-of-cost Covid-care facility and is primarily handled by Doctors For You,” the online post for the fundraiser read.
