How India’s Richest Man Stepped Up to Fight Recent Outbreak in India
I don’t really know how much people really keep up with the numbers worldwide regarding the forbidden illness especially those in other countries outside of the United States.
But in case you were unaware the search of new cases of the (forbidden illness) in India is massive. They have been seeing upwards of 300,000 and nearly 400,000 new cases per day. It’s really hard to try to figure out what exactly brought all of this on, especially now one year later after everything started. Here we are hopefully nearing the end of our fight against this thing yeah India really looks like third just now getting started with it and that’s sad. I suppose one good thing you would be able to say about that happening right now is at least there is a vaccine to help end things quickly (depending on your view of the vaccine).
One of the big issues that India is facing right now in regards to the forbidden illness is that they are running out of oxygen for people to use to help them with breathing. That’s where India’s richest man steps in. Mukesh Ambani has retooled some factories to help produce oxygen for people.
Traditionally, Reliance Industries is not a manufacturer of medical-grade liquid oxygen. But over a year into the pandemic, the company—which is owned by India’s richest man Mukesh Ambani—has gone on to become the nation’s largest producer from a single location, supplying over 55,000 MT of medical-grade liquid oxygen to people since March 2020.
At its refinery-cum-petrochemical complex in Jamnagar and other facilities, Reliance is producing over 1000 MT of medical-grade liquid oxygen per day—or over 11% of India’s total production—meeting the needs of nearly every 1 in 10 patients needing the life-saving treatment across the nation.
“Nothing is more important than saving every life as India battles against a new wave of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Chairman Mukesh Ambani said in a statement.
