Each of these containers can carry 20 metric tonnes of oxygen. This will ensure that oxygen will be transferred to hospitals faster than before, an official spokesman for the Adani Group said here.

Additionally, the Group had donated 500 beds along with the required equipment to the Thiruvananthapuram Corporation to set up Covid First Line Treatment Centres (CFLTCs), the spokesman added.

As part of Covid-19 defence activities, AVPPL has been continuously providing assistance to community kitchens in Kerala and has also distributed masks and sanitisers and conducted defence awareness activities as part of its social commitment programmes.
