SpiceJet's freight carrier SpiceXpress has airlifted into India 800 oxygen concentrators in a bid to help address the acute shortage of medical oxygen in different parts of the country which are battling a surging wave of fresh COVID-19 cases, Economic Times.
SpiceJet's chairman and managing director Ajay Singh said that the airline along with its sister company SpiceHealth is looking to bring into India more than 10,000 oxygen concentrators in the coming days from across the globe.
The development gains significance as it comes at a time when several other private sector majors have also joined the national effort to cope against the surge in fresh COVID-19 cases in different parts of the country. These include the likes of N Chandrasekharan led Tata Group, Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), Sanjiv Puri led ITC Limited, Gautam Adani led Adani Group, Sajjan Jindal led JSW Group, and many more.
Meanwhile, it should be noted that launched by the promoters of SpiceJet, SpiceHealth has also conducted more than 20 lakh RT-PCR tests in the country as of date.
