India's 'Oxygen Express' Heads to Maharashtra to Aid COVID-19 Response

Several tanker trucks carrying liquid oxygen left a steel plant in Visakhapatnam, India, on Thursday, April 22, as part of the country’s “Oxygen Express” service to help tackle an influx of COVID-19 cases.

The tankers arrived at the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant on Thursday morning to load up on oxygen before heading to aid COVID-19 patients in Maharashtra, the Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited (RINL) said.

Video released by the RINL on Thursday night shows oxygen tankers leaving its plant.

India reported the world’s highest single-day spike in COVID-19 cases on Thursday, with more than 314,000 new cases. Credit: RINL via Storyful
