Kathua: In a major relief to people in Kathua district, the oxygen generation plant in Government Medical College Hospital in the district was on Wednesday commissioned successfully.
According to Kathua Deputy Commissioner Rahul Yadav, the trial run of the plant was conducted successfully in the morning. It now stands commissioned.
Kathua GMC Hospital, where COVID-19 positive patients from the district have been admitted, used to get Oxygen supply in cylinders from a private plant in the district. This private plant, however, had developed some technical snag on May 9 making the administration to turn to adjoining Samba district for Oxygen supply to hospital.
