Mexico City Joins A Citizen Initiative To Distribute Oxygen Among Covid-19 Patients

The Digital Agency for Public Innovation (ADIP) has announced that the Government of Mexico City will join the Oxygen CC initiative, developed by students from the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN) and the Tecnologico de Monterrey, for coronavirus patients who are treating the sick from home and require medical oxygen. The objective of this platform is to publicize the locations and opening hours of the different vital gas distribution points and centers.

From the website https://oxigenocdmx.cc, the relatives of covid-19 patients will be able to easily find the places, public or private, for sale, rental, or filling of tanks of this input, within the metropolis.

The initiative was born from the need to provide the population with updated information on the sales and rental network of oxygen cylinders since the saturation of hospitals in Mexico City has forced thousands of people infected by the virus to treat the condition from home; coupled with the poor public perception of the treatments within the clinics. The increase in the demand for medical gas for months has triggered the purchase and sale through internet sites or places near health centers. However, on occasions, the type of cylinder is not suitable for the treatment or they are filled with other types of gases.

These four points will offer the recharge of the input for free.

Through a statement, the capital government reported that the platform emerged in Mexico City, reaching more than 260,000 visits with more than 70 oxygen service establishments, and coverage in more than 10 information media of local and national scope, due to to the interest of users and the development of the pandemic, he thanked the citizen platform for its efforts and asked the population not to purchase the oxygen cylinders that are offered on social networks that do not ensure their operation for medicinal use.
