According to the state government, the order will be applicable to all government Covid vaccination centres in the state. Delhi's oxygen demand has reduced and it can give its surplus oxygen to other states that need it, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said today as the capital continued to report a dip in coronavirus cases. "The oxygen demand has come down and hospital beds are getting free. At that time (15 days ago), we needed 700 metric tonnes of oxygen, according to the beds... Delhi's oxygen demand has come down to 582 metric tonnes per day."
