On Monday, a senior central government official told reporters that there is no shortage of oxygen in Delhi or anywhere in the country.

The chief doctor of a children's hospital told us that our heart was in the mouth, because there was a danger of the children dying when oxygen ran out. In such a situation, with the help of a local leader, the oxygen supply hospital could be received on time.

Even after this, the central government is repeatedly insisting that there is no shortage of oxygen in the country.

A senior official of the Union Home Ministry said about this, "We are having difficulty in transportation of oxygen". Therefore, he also advised the hospitals to use oxygen wisely as per the guidelines.

However, many doctors who spoke to the BBC have said that they are giving oxygen only to those patients who desperately need it.

But even after doing this, oxygen is running low. However, experts say that lack of oxygen is one of the many problems, which shows that both the center and the state were not ready for the second wave of corona.

In early March, an expert group of government-created scientists warned the authorities about a far more contagious variant of the coronavirus.

Despite this, on 8 March, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan announced the end of the corona epidemic. In such a situation, the question arises as to where the government has 'missed'?
