The Ministry of Health has decided to build oxygen generation facilities at 15 of the country’s hospitals.
According to the Ministry, the quick project will cost Rs.1.3 billion.
The project will be supported by a loan from the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank, according to a statement from the Health Ministry.
The Ministry of Health indicated that there is a demand for oxygen to treat individuals afflicted with the new coronavirus..
It has been discovered that manufacturing oxygen at rural hospitals is more viable than manufacturing oxygen in a central place and transporting cylinders.
As a result, production facilities will be built in hospitals in Teldeniya, Rikillagaskada, Hambantota, Badulla, Puttalam, and Kurunegala, which are located outside of the Western Province.
COVID-19 treatment centers will be built in various hospitals, according to the Ministry of Health.
