After Mukesh Ambani sends oxygen from his refineries to aid India’s COVID-19 fight, Ratan Tata backed Tata Groups to now import 24 cryogenic containers to contribute towards curbing the oxygen crisis. The company will transport the liquid oxygen to hospitals in several states.
Tata Steel is reportedly supplying up to 300 tonnes of gas per day to states like Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Odisha and West Bengal amidst the pandemic COVID-19 outspread. On Tuesday, the company took to its official Twitter handle and shared the update.
“PM @narendramodi ‘s appeal to the people of India is laudatory and we at the Tata Group, are committed to doing as much as possible to strengthen the fight against #COVID19. To mitigate the oxygen crisis here is one such effort to boost health Infrastructure,” read the tweet post which was in response to PM Narendra Modi’s appreciation for private sector industries which have that have been helping the hospitals in the crises.
