750 beds in various Military Hospitals have been set aside for civilian use. Mr Thakur said IAF transport aircraft have carried out 50 sorties, airlifting 61 oxygen containers of 1142 MT capacity from abroad.
Naval ships – Kolkata, Kochi, Tabar, Trikand, Jalashwa and Airavat – have been deployed for shipment of liquid medical oxygen-filled cryogenic containers and associated medical equipment from various countries in the Middle East and South-East Asia.
The Minister added that not only did NDA Government double the allocation during the COVID period last year from 61 thousand 500 crore rupees to a historic high of over  one lakh crore rupees, but also increased the wages to 202 rupees thereby ensuring 300 crore person days of work in total.
