The Karnataka government has ordered an inquiry after 24 patients died at a government hospital on Sunday night. The deaths were reported at the hospital in Chamarajanagar allegedly after the oxygen supply dropped. At least 144 patients are being treated at the hospital.
A pall of gloom descended on the Chamarajanagar district hospital as the grieving kin of the deceased gathered after hearing the news. Family members of the dead also staged a demonstration at the hospital and alleged there was a shortage of oxygen and raised slogans.
Mysuru MP, Pratap Simha, said, “Last night, when media people drew my attention to the situation of oxygen shortage in Chamarajnagar district, I myself contacted Deputy Commissioner (DC) Dr MR Ravi and took a conference call with ADC who is in charge of oxygen.
Hospitals across the country, especially the states that have been witnessing an upsurge in the Covid-19 cases, have been sending out desperate messages of help on social media and other platforms, flagging their dwindling stocks of oxygen.
