Railway Oxygen Express: Oxygen will be sent by trains across the country for corona patients, speeding up supply in states with severe shortages






Railways will run Oxygen Express to alleviate the increased demand and oxygen shortage across the country due to the corona patient. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said on social media that the trains would deliver liquid medical oxygen and oxygen cylinders across the country. Trains for this will run soon.



The Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra governments have asked the railways to consider the possibility of transporting liquid medical oxygen. The railways then investigated the difficulty related to the technology of transportation of liquid oxygen. After verifying all the matters, it has been decided that oxygen tankers will be sent in the empty bogies of the freight train. A trial for this was held in Boisar, Mumbai on Sunday. It was loaded onto a loaded tanker flat wagon and inspected.
