New Delhi (NVI): Reports claiming that India exported medical oxygen during the pandemic are false as industrial oxygen exports are being mistaken as medical oxygen, the Government said today.

Taking cognizance of one such media report, which claims that the export of oxygen rose over 700% in January 2021 as compared to last year, PIB’s Fact Check Unit said that it is false.

The Fact Check Unit has said that annual exports were <0.4% of annual capacity and no oxygen exports are happening now.
