London, 19 August 2021:

Libya’s Health Ministry announced yesterday that the sixth shipment of liquefied medical oxygen totalling 180,000 litres arrived in Tripoli from Egypt.

The consignment is part of an agreement struck between Libya’s Health Minister, Ali Al-Zanati, with his Egyptian counterpart, Hala Zayed, on 12 April for Egypt to supply Libya with medical grade oxygen.

The supply agreement is in response to the Coronavirus emergency.

It comes within the framework of the Ministry of Health’s endeavour to cover the increased demand for medical oxygen gas in Isolation Centres, especially in Libya’s western region.

The oxygen supply crisis is over?

It will be recalled that two weeks ago, Health Minister Ali Zanati held a virtual meeting with the directors of Tripoli’s main hospitals to discuss the problem of medical oxygen supply.

The meeting reviewed the current situation of oxygen in terms of production, what was distributed, the efforts made to provide it to cover the shortage, and the possibility of providing hospitals with all means, whether by providing oxygen imported from Egypt or providing hospitals with urgent factories to cover their needs.

The Minister had then assured the attendees that the oxygen crisis will be ‘‘completely and radically overcome within three days.’’
