Sir Ganga Ram Hospital here received two tonnes of liquid medical oxygen on Tuesday morning, an official from the hospital said.

The official asserted that they are in a better situation as compared to "the last few days" when the hospital in central Delhi faced a crisis due to severe shortage of the life-saving gas.
