Continuing the momentum, the officials further said “There are three more trains on the run either carrying Liquid Medical Oxygen (LMO) and on the way to the loading plants. It is expected that cumulative LMO carried by Indian railways will reach almost 640 MT in next 24 hours”.

Sharing breakup of the Liquid Medical Oxygen (LMO) transported to different parts of the country, the officials said, Uttar Pradesh received its Oxygen express Number 5 carrying 76.29 MT of LMO today in five tankers.

“Out of these, one tanker was offloaded in Varanasi while the remaining four tankers were offloaded in Lucknow. Train Number 6 is already on its way to Lucknow and is expected to arrive tomorrow carrying 33.18 MT LMO in four tankers.
