The COVID-19 pandemic has raised the global oxygen demand and made the delivery of oxygen supplies more urgent including access to oxygen equipment.
According to The World Health Organisation Oxygen is an essential medicine used to care for patients at all levels of the healthcare system, including in surgery, trauma, heart failure, asthma, pneumonia, and maternal and child care. Pneumonia alone accounts for 800 000 deaths per year. It is estimated that 20–40% of these deaths could be prevented with the availability of oxygen therapy.
ADAMA believes in being stronger together and hopes to overcome this pandemic soon through such initiatives.
