Fazal Steel Pvt Limited has shown readiness to offer free of cost oxygen refill to hospitals provided availability of certified cylinders.
This was stated by top officials of Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry (ICCI) in a statement on Friday. They assured the government that ICCI will work with the local industries to make sure that there is no shortage of oxygen and sufficient oxygen is available for coronavirus patients in the federal capital.
The ICCI Executive Body discussed this important issue with the representatives of local industries. The meeting was of the view that it is high time that the local industries including pharmaceuticals, steel, chemicals and others should spare oxygen to cope with any emergency situation related to its supply for the Covid-19 patients.
The ICCI Executive Body urged that the industries in Islamabad should also come forward to spare oxygen from their industrial operations so that it could be supplied to the coronavirus patients in case of its shortage in Islamabad.
Pakistan Oxygen Ltd, Multan Chemicals Ltd, Ghani Gases, Sharif Gases and Oxygen are the major gas producers in Pakistan that supply gas to Islamabad, Lahore, Peshawar and Hattar where it is stored in tanks.
