At least six Delhi hospitals have run out of liquid medical oxygen, as per a letter written by Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia to Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Thursday.

Mr. Sisodia urged the Union Minister to intervene to save the lives of people of Delhi and make sure that Delhi gets its quota of oxygen from other States.

He said that Delhi was not getting the full quota of oxygen from a plant in Haryana as district officials were stopping trucks coming from Delhi to get the liquid medical oxygen.

Earlier in the day, several city hospitals said that they have dangerously low levels of oxygen.
