The capital, Delhi, has a grim picture of the Corona situation. 348 people have died in Corona in the last 24 hours. 24 thousand 331 people were affected. Meanwhile, many hospitals are in acute crisis of oxygen.
Delhi’s Mulchand Hospital this morning appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal that they have only two hours of oxygen. There are 135 patients in Oxygen Support. No new corona patients are being admitted to the hospital in this condition.
On the other hand, the Max Hospital in Delhi has also reported that there is enough oxygen to last only an hour. Meanwhile, 600 Kavid patients are admitted in the hospital. The Oxygen Express reached Maharashtra yesterday to handle the supply of oxygen to Maharashtra. It has 6 oxygen tankers. The express reached Nagpur on Friday evening.
Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has alleged that some states are blocking the entry of oxygen tankers into Delhi. Kejriwal complains that there is no oxygen plant in Delhi. In this situation there has been an acute crisis.
Earlier on Tuesday, corona was identified in the bodies of 26,395 people in Delhi. 240 people died that day.
An oxygen tanker leaked in Nashik district of Maharashtra, India, killing 22 corona patients due to lack of oxygen. The district collector has confirmed the information. The accident took place when an oxygen tanker leaked outside a hospital in Maharashtra. The oxygen supply was cut off for about 30 minutes. As a result, 22 corona patients died due to acute oxygen crisis.
District Collector Suraj Mandhare said that according to the latest information, 22 patients have died due to lack of oxygen supply in Zakir Hussain Municipal Hospital. Corona patients are being treated at the hospital. All those who died were on ventilator support. They need endless oxygen support. But these patients could not be saved as the oxygen supply was cut off for about 30 minutes. About 150 patients are on ventilator or oxygen support at the hospital.
Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Top said the government would investigate the incident. “According to the information we have, patients who were on ventilator support have died,” he said. Corona patients were being treated at the hospital in Nasik. There were also 10 patients on ventilation. They are believed to have died due to lack of oxygen.
Kailash Yadav, commissioner of Nashik’s Purnigam, also said that the oxygen supply to the hospital had to be cut off for about 30 minutes due to an oxygen leak. As a result, patients on ventilation without oxygen may die. However, the hospital authorities did not say whether the lack of oxygen was the cause of death of the rest of the patients.
