LAHORE: The Pakistan Oxygen Limited (POL), a leading supplier of oxygen across the country, has expressed its inability to fulfil the increasing demand for oxygen in the wake of the rising Covid-19 cases.

In force majeure notices sent to major hospitals, the company has made it clear that bridging the demand and supply gap was not possible even after running its three plants in Lahore and Karachi at full capacity.

The Pakistan Oxygen Limited has requested the hospitals to make arrangements for procuring oxygen from other sources from here onwards till further notice.

POL has said that it will not be responsible for any liability on account of its inability to meet any demand for the supply of oxygen to the hospitals. Due to the pandemic, the demand for oxygen has reached unprecedented levels.

Despite continuous increase in plants capacity, oxygen supply is far less than the requirement of hospitals.
