MUMBAI: Several mosques in the city and the suburbs have begun to provide oxygen cylinders to Covid-19 patients and, in turn, take some pressure off the hospitals. The free oxygen comes with kits that can be fitted at home for Covid-19 patients whose oxygen saturation level is low.
Initiated by NGO Red Crescent Society of India, oxygen cylinders are being provided by several mosques in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, including the city, Mumbra, Mira Road, Kalyan and Bhiwandi.
Dr Azimuddin added more mosques would be roped in, provided the factory does not stop the supply. Hospitals are being preferred as far as the supply of oxygen is concerned. But it is also important oxygen is made available to NGOs trying to ameliorate people’s misery, he said.
