The Lamjung district hospital here has established an oxygen plant. The plant was installed at the hospital located at Beshisahar Municipality-8 last night.

Hospital chief Hemanta Shrestha said, "The works on oxygen plant were accomplished in a day. We began it in the afternoon and completed it at 10:00 pm. Now, the oxygen would be distributed within two days."

He further said it would be easy to treat COVID-19 patients with the installation of an oxygen plant. The materials for the plant had arrived in the district on Saturday morning.

Fifteen cylinders of oxygen are produced by the plant every day. Preparation is underway to supply the oxygen via pipeline to emergency, ICU, isolation, and in-patient ward as well. There are 83 beds in total in the hospital.

However, for now, the oxygen distribution is prioritized to the COVID-19 patients, he added.

Currently, there are 17 COVID-19 patients receiving treatment at the hospital here. It has 25 isolation beds with an oxygen facility
