Bengaluru is going through a major pandemic crisis and the city needs as many oxygen concentrators as possible to help hospitals and families of individuals affected by Covid-19. Providing oxygen for a large number of critical Covid patients is the need of the hour and the shortfall in supply.

This is being bridged by oxygen concentrators which can fulfil the gap by providing relief to patients when supply is short and they need oxygen support for breathing issues.

Namma Bengaluru Foundation (NBF) in association with Amazon has distributed 10 oxygen concentrators to Sir C V Raman General Hospital, Indiranagar Government Hospital for patients who require oxygen.

Reeling under the rising Covid-19 cases, Karnataka government has imposed a complete lockdown in the state from 6 am on May 10 to 6 am of May 24. Essential services will be allowed to remain functional from 6 am to 10 am every day. All commercial activities are prohibited.

Karnataka’s active caseload breached five lakh with 49,058 fresh COVID-19 infections on Thursday, while the toll stood at 17,212 with 328 deaths, the health department said. According to the department bulletin, the infection count is now 17,90,104 whereas there are 5,17,075 active cases in the state. With 18,943 discharges on Thursday, 12,55,797 people have been discharged so far.

Bengaluru Urban district alone reported 23,706 fresh infections and 139 fatalities. The city has so far reported 8,87,086 infections and 7,145 deaths. There were 3,32,732 active cases.

NBF has taken up this drive and urges corporates and individuals to come forward and contribute to help fight the second wave of the coronavirus.
