Postpone non-essential surgeries, save oxygen: Maha task force chief

Mumbai, Apr 16 (PTI) The Maharashtra State COVID task force chairperson Dr Sanjay Oak has suggested that non-essential surgeries be postponed to save medical oxygen.

He said the decision on this, however, would have to be taken at a local level as factors such as the patient's condition and medical urgency are paramount.
