India has been for a while been hit with lack of oxygen supply after the Coronavirus wave that has swept the country. Many had not been vaccinated as did not experiencing any major crisis last year. Since the widely publicised wave that has swept the need and demand for medical oxygen is high.
Ludhiana, which being the biggest district with a maximum population of over 3.5-million passed through a harrowing time during the deadly second Covid wave, has built a strong medical oxygen infrastructure to meet the anticipated high demand of the life-saving gas during the possible third virus wave, the government has confirmed.
Besides accumulating maximum cylinders, the district has also acquired the highest number of oxygen concentrators in the state, the official figures have revealed.
6,165 oxygen cylinders made available
The data compiled by the Health and Family Welfare Department, which is available with The Tribune, showed that Ludhiana has made available 6,165 oxygen cylinders, including 4,774 D-type cylinders, 4,158 in private and 616 in government hospitals, and 1,391 B-type cylinders, including 855 in private and 536 in government institutions.
This week we have seen the travel doors given the green light for UK to arrive in the Balearic Islands. Travellers have the good news that fully vaccinated or negative test will allow entry onto the islands. There is growing concern and pressure to open up travel corridors and also tourism but also with Covid cases on the increase to also be very careful on regulations and guidelines.
Ibiza, Menorca, Majorca and Formentera will be hot destinations to travel to for English Tourists looking to get some summer sun.
The announcement also includes other destinations such as the Caribbean islands that are going on the green list are Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
For those who need medical oxygen at home this can seem daunting. Home oxygen is needed for those who have low oxygen levels and having this supply can help those with respiratory illnesses.
For some this may be a relatively new requirement especially if you have been in hospital with coronavirus and on your after-care plan you still require extra help with oxygen to improve your condition and daily life.
Oxygen at home or oxygen therapy increases the oxygen levels in your blood flow and can help with daily activities all based upon what your doctor has required necessary.
It can seem very scary but this vital source of medical equipment not only will help you breathe but will enable you to be able to move around, do daily exercise and even (when we can) venture on holiday. You do not have to miss out.

Long-awaited trials on a vaccine are now over with multiple trials now complete and signed off for roll-out with UK and US beginning their plans first. Below are a few of the common questions asked as it is perfectly normal to be anxious, worried or want to know what the vaccine is or does.
What does the vaccine do? The vaccine helps protect you from the major symptoms of coronavirus and you may only have a mild form of the virus
How is the vaccine received? The vaccine needs to be administered in two separate doses a few weeks apart. This does mean two trips to the local vaccination centre.
Are there any side affects? Sometimes but these have been advised to be mild such as swelling where the injection was inserted, headache or feeling tired or a fever.
When will I get my vaccine? This depends on where you live, but most countries will be rolling out a schedule starting with the most vulnerable such as Elderly, health care workers and anyone with health problems that are really at high risk from coronavirus. Refer to your governments website for details where you live.
How does it work? The vaccine trains the body’s immune system to recognise the virus and help it to defend itself against a future attack.
For further information and detail please refer to your local healthcare website, especially if you have questions over the Covid-19 vaccine.

Christmas has come around so fast this year for everyone. It is time to spread cheer amongst one another hence why we have seen to many people jump onto Christmas planning, decorating so early! It may be the only period on which we can see loved ones.
It is a time of uncertainty still, anxiousness and frustration for many especially those who are separated by countries. It has been a long year for all and it is time to speak a little cheer and have something to look forward to. A few ideas to make Christmas special this year:
1. Make and decorate your own festive wreath, it can be fun to do and there are so many options from traditional festive wreaths to more modern takes
2. Donate to charities instead of sending Christmas cards this year – many are doing this to help support charities at a time when fundraising has been difficult for vital research and support
3. Make sure you call or even better video call your nearest and dearest if you are not planning to be together. A conversation and talking goes a long way when you may be feeling lonely
4. Support local independents – it has been a struggle for many small shops and restaurants to try and stay afloat so this year if you do buy gifts buy local
5. Baking is very therapeutic for many plus after your hard work you get to enjoy a treat or even share with your neighbours! There are many recipes out there to feed your festive spirit from mince pies and Christmas puddings to reindeer cookies, roast dinners and even make your own mulled wine!

Oxygen treats so many conditions – Pneumonia plus many other respiratory diseases need medical oxygen to survive. The lack and low oxygen levels that come with these conditions means that the supply and need for medical oxygen is very very important. This affects people who suffer from illnesses such as: COPD, sleep apnea, extreme asthma attacks and more recently COVID-19.
Oxygen is needed for all life on earth including animals – It is not just us humans but all the animals and plants need oxygen to function just as we do. The need for oxygen is for everything around us on Earth from beautiful flowers and trees to the animals in our oceans and on land.
Oxygen helps mountaineers stay alive – The sheer atmosphere that comes with mountain areas across the world and its high elevations means that oxygen is needed to hep breathe and stay alive due to the drop in pressure at such high altitudes.
