The CM explained that the burden on Hyderabad has increased due to the arrival of Kovid for treatment from states like Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. The CM told the Prime Minister that an additional 50 per cent of corona patients from the Telangana population would come from other states to take over the availability of Oxygen Vaccine Remedy Mantri drugs on Hyderabad. Under these circumstances, the state is currently receiving only 440 metric tonnes of oxygen per day and asked the Prime Minister to increase it to 500 metric tonnes. He said that only 4,900 remedies were being received in Telangana per day and asked to increase them to at least 25 thousand per day.
