When the Government General Hospital and two other hospitals in the city ran out of oxygen at 11 a.m. on Wednesday morning because the cryogenic tanker carrying liquid medical oxygen had not arrived, Anantapur police personnel made sure a tanker arrived on time for “Green Channel.” “.
The oxygen was loaded into the tanker of the Toranagallu oxygen-producing unit in Karnataka, which at 6 a.m. covered a distance of 150 km in three hours and reached the GGH at 9 a.m. Police made sure the vehicle wasn’t stopping anywhere and kept speed by clearing the traffic in advance.
To make sure there was a replacement driver, the police took one to the starting point and arranged for the food to be handed over to those in the tanker cabin in Vidapanakal.
