[1/n] 10 days ago we first shared blueprint of O2 conservation devices in context of #OxygenShortage; today we are releasing "Anmo2l" (means priceless in Hindi) - a ready to scale open design capable of saving 50-70% oxygen during O2 therapy. See details.
[2/n] The surge of COVID-19 cases in India and around the world has resulted in an acute oxygen shortage. We describe a simple, open source, and rapidly manufacturable conservation device for use with dual port nasal cannulas saving oxygen supply by almost two or three times.
[3/n] We are looking for partners/manufacturers across world to help bring this to patients. If you have experience in local regulatory processes, we want to support you to bring this rapidly to communities suffering with O2 shortage including India/Nepal, Latin America, Africa.

This is going to be a long thread on how Arvind Kejriwal is deliberately fooling Common public and playing dirty politics amid the Covid-19 Pandemic. Please support this by RT.
RTI reveals that no new hospital has been built by Delhi Government from April 2015 to March 2019. Not even a single hospital.
Even after the pandemic no ventilator has been ordered. After July 2020 the government has done no effort to get oxygen cylinders or tanks. Now the CM is lamenting in front of others to give these resources.

900 Metric Tons per day oxygen is enough for 90000 patients requiring oxygen support.

Total active patients in Delhi are 90000. Is everyone on oxygen support?

What’s going on?

@TajinderBagga @KapilMishra_IND @drharshvardhan @GautamGambhir @AbhishBanerj @Iyervval ImageImage
Why would someone say no to audit? What’s there to hide? Why shouldn’t there be an accountability on usage of a life saving commodity?

#OxygenShortage or #OxygenScam

@AbhishBanerj @ShefVaidya Image
In Mumbai oxygen flow was budgeted as 6 liters per minute per patient requiring oxygen support. It was lowered to 4.2 also when crisis came. So even without crisis it was 6 LPM.

I have done calculation using average flow of 10. With 5 LPM, 900 MTD is enough for 1.8 Lakh people Image
