According to reports shared by Geo News the Supreme Court has directed the government to fix the price of oxygen cylinders.
A three-member bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Gulzar Ahmed, heard the coronavirus suo motu case in the Supreme Court during which the court ordered fixing the price of oxygen cylinders amid the worsening coronavirus situation in the country.

The apex court said that a procedure should also be worked out to determine the price.
Meanwhile, Advocate General Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) said that the suppliers were charging exorbitant rates as the price for O2 cylinders was not fixed.
