Thus, the organization has provided exemplary service during this second wave of Corona pandemic, Mr. Shah further said and added that during the second-wave of the Corona pandemic, the biggest challenge was to meet the demand of oxygen for the patients, which had risen from daily one thousand tons to ten-thousand tons.
He had further stated that accepting this challenge, the states had given full cooperation. The Union Government had supplied the oxygen to the states using cryogenic tankers through railways, thus ensuring that no place face short supply of the oxygen. Owing to our united efforts and constant and consistent contributions from Corona Warriors – doctors, paramedical staff and others – we were able to constrain the second wave of the Corona pandemic and could manage to reduce the oxygen demand down to 3500 Mt Ton per day.
He also praised Gujarat for its success in curbing the Corona pandemic under the competent and visionary leaderships of Mr. Rupani and Deputy Chief Minister Mr. Nitinbhai Patel.

He further stated that Gujarat had successfully curbed the first wave of Corona pandemic. The second wave was also brought under the control with similar aggressiveness. Now, when the experts are drawing probability of the third wave, Gujarat is fully ready for it.
The Chief Minister further stated that as a result of the industrial growth made in Gujarat during the regime of the Prime Minister when he was Chief Minister of the state, thus the industrial oxygen had become available during the Corona transition time, and state did not face short supply in oxygen.
He said that against the limitations of liquid oxygen, we aim to set up plants in the state to get oxygen directly from the air and avail 300 tonnes of PSA oxygen to become self-reliant.
