As of last week about a dozen firms, including Reliance Industries Ltd, Tata Steel Ltd, Indian Oil Corp. Ltd, Bharat Petroleum Corp. Ltd and JSW Steel Ltd, Jindal Steel and Power and Vedanta group are supplying oxygen to hospitals. While Allcargo Logistics has offered to ship 500 oxygen concentrators from Singapore for the Maharashtra government.
Linde and Tata's group have offered 24 oxygen transport tanks that will be given soon.
As per the report from Steel Authority of India (Sail), the company as of now has sent 35,000 tonnes of liquid medical oxygen of 99.7% purity from its plants at Bokaro (Jharkhand), Bhilai (Chhattisgarh), Rourkela (Odisha), Durgapur and Burnpur in West Bengal.
This great help from the corporate sector will help the country a lot. We need a big co-operation among people of all classes. This is the crisis period before us that has raised a question mark on our existence on this planet. Many people are dying daily because of this pandemic.
All people should come forward to help the needy and see that people will not lose their lives. All may not be able to help in a big way. But whatever we can do should be done. Small small droplets can fill the container. All differences should be kept aside and strive for coming out of this difficult situation.
Many people are losing their confidence and worrying too much. That is making them weak and they are getting more prone to the virus. So let us not attempt to forward negative messages on social media, Let us spread positivity among the people and that is also the greatest help we can do.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

Even this challenging situation would ease
small drops make a mighty ocean
Even the small units like Surya Bulb of Gwalior slashed its production of Bulb to streamline the supply of oxygen in the different health units so as to render help to the patients who are badly in need of oxygen to overcome the lung infection due to corona. Such helps are proving to be eminent help in the hours of crisis. Hope, many more organisations would join to help the patients suffering from the infection of corona.
