The oxygen control room is being headed by senior IAS officer Rahul Tewari with officers Tanu Kashyap, Abhinav Trikha, Pradeep Aggarwal and Shaukat Ahmed Pairi as members. The control room for hospital bed availability will be under the supervision of IAS officer Ajoy Sharma with officers Vijay Naamdeo Zaade, Mohammad Tayyab, Vipul Ujjwal and Praveen Kumar Thind as members.
Chairing a meeting of the oxygen control room, Tewari said the functions of both control rooms could be accessed by public on website statecovidcontrolroom.punjab.gov.in.

He said regular updates regarding availability of oxygen and beds would be made available to public through social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter.
