A mini-oxygen plant has been installed at Raskot hospital located at Raskot Municipality in Kalikot district. The National Innovation Centre installed the mini-oxygen plant free of cost to facilitate the treatment of COVID-19 patients.

Ritesh Dev of the Centre said that the Centre has been manufacturing health equipment and distributing them in order to protect the citizens of remote and mountainous districts from COVID-19 pandemic. "Sixty litres of oxygen is produced per minute from the mini-oxygen plant and oxygen cylinders have been installed at 10 beds, added Dev.

The Centre has given special importance to the rural areas. Chief of the hospital, Dr Bhojraj Bam, said that with the installation of oxygen plants, serious types of disease could be treated there as the hospital was compelled to refer coronavirus patients to other hospitals for lack of medical oxygen.

Chairperson of the National Innovation Centre, Mahabir Pun, shared that they have started manufacturing 11 types of health equipment in order to prevent and control COVID-19 infection and distributing them free of cost to health institutions in remote areas of western and eastern districts of the country.
