Pakistan heading towards oxygen shortage if immediate action not taken,’ warn producers


ISLAMABAD: Pakistani producers of oxygen gas have warned the authorities of an extreme shortage looming in the country amid the third wave of COVID-19, which continues to wreak havoc. In a joint statement, they stated that they are currently producing oxygen at their maximum capacity and if coronavirus cases continue to rise, the situation could turn similar to that in India, where a shortage of the vital gas has triggered a serious public health crisis. “We are currently producing the gas at our maximum capacity and the continued supply of oxygen to industries can [soon] affect the health sector,” they warned.
