FAIZABAD: A new medical oxygen producing-plant was set up in the country’s northern province of Badakhshan, the provincial hospital said Monday.
The factory is said to produce up to 1,000 balloons of oxygen in 24 hours supplying the oxygen needed for the healthcare centers in the province, the hospital said in a statement.
“Shortage of oxygen, felt in the provincial hospital, would be removed, after the practical operation of the plant,” according to the source.
Few days ago, a medical oxygen manufacturing-plant has also been reportedly opened in the country’s northern Baghlan province.
Despite being an essential medicine, oxygen is a complex product needed to be produced by a medical device or industrial plant.
Many Afghanistan’s hospitals heavily lacked oxygen after the overspread of COVID-19 all over the country.
