Covid-19 Third Wave: Supreme Court Asks Centre To Create Oxygen Buffer

New Delhi: The Supreme Court asked the Centre on Thursday to begin preparations for the third wave of Covid-19 pandemic by arranging a buffer stock of medical oxygen.

“We may enter stage three and if we prepare today, we may be able to handle it. Whatever stocks procured needs to be sent to the hospitals. It’s not about allocating it to the state but also the logistics to see that it is distributed to hospitals,” Justice DY Chandrachud was quoted as saying by the Bar and Bench.

Justice Chandrachud observed this while hearing the Centre’s response to non-compliance of its direction to supply 700 MT of oxygen to Delhi.

“What is the problem in enhancing the supply (of oxygen)? If it’s not required then it can be stored. But then it can be said that there is no need for oxygen panic. This will be a buffer for Delhi,” he asked.

His remark comes on the heels of Principal Scientific Advisor to the Prime Minister, Dr KV Vijay Raghavan’s warning that the third wave of COVID-19 was “inevitable” given the high levels of the circulating virus.
