The Rajasthan government has directed all private hospital operators in the state having a capacity of 60 or more to set up centralised oxygen pipelines amid rising demand for the life-saving gas.

The demand for medical oxygen is increasing due to rise in the number of COVID-19 cases. The decision has been taken in view of the supply of demand, state Health Secretary Siddharth Mahajan said in a statement.
