Another Oxygen Express of Indian Railways has embarked on its journey to Bangladesh carrying a second tranche of 200 MT of Liquid Medical Oxygen (LMO) to help address respiratory distress.
On Tuesday morning, a train carrying 200MT LMO in 10 containers (20MT each) imported by Linde Bangladesh departed for Bangladesh from Tatanagar in India.
This consignment will significantly augment reserves of Liquid Medical Oxygen in Bangladesh, said the Indian High Commission in Dhaka.
With this, India reaffirmed its commitment to continue to support Bangladesh in its fight against the pandemic, it said.
Linde Bangladesh said Sunday, it will continue the import of medical oxygen by train to supplement its local supply with active assistance from Linde India, the governments of India and Bangladesh.
This is one of several initiatives that Linde Bangladesh has embarked on to help support the fight against the current Covid-19 crisis, including the Medical Oxygen Booths inaugurated at Khulna Medical College Hospital earlier this week, it said.
