Karnataka: 24 Covid patients die at Chrajnagar hospital due to oxygen shortage
BENGALURU: The oxygen crisis took a heavy toll when 24 Covid patients died in Chrajnagar, 175km away from Bengaluru, after the go nment district hospital ran out of oxygen supply on Sunday midnight.
The Yediyurappa go nment has convened an emergency meeting to probe what led to the terrible tragedy, where patients died on their hospital beds after the oxygen supplies to them ended at around 11.45pm.
Preliminary investigations revealed that the oxygen supply to the district hospital had not reached in time from Mysuru, where the oxygen distribution network had been established.
"Died or Killed? My heartfelt condolences to their families. How much more suffering before the ‘sy em’ wakes up?'" tweeted Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.
Chrajnagar deputy commissioner Dr M R Ravi said the 24 people had died from Sunday morning to Monday morning.
Chrajnagar副局长M R Ravi博士说，从周日早上到周一早上，已有24人死亡。
“We cannot say that all have died because of oxygen shortage. As per doctors’ report, 12 have died due to lack of oxygen while the others have succumbed to various comorbidities and underlying medical conditions.”
District in-charge minister S Suresh Kumar said, "We have sought a death audit report and it is expected this afternoon, we will initiate action ag inst those responsible for the deaths. In most cases, the patients have come at the last minute. We did not get the required oxygen supply on time from Mysuru."
地区主管部长S Suresh Kumar说，“我们已经要求提供死亡审计报告，预计今天下午，我们将对那些应对死亡负责的人采取行动。Mysuru的氧气供应没有及时送到。”
"An alert was sounded on Sunday evening to the district administration about the imminent danger when we realised that the hospital would soon run out of oxygen, but nothing was done to augment supplies on time," hospital staff said.
We need more statue, mandir bullet train, world largest cricket satdium .. health infra who cares?
Until Indians don't hold PM accountable for this tragedy, this dance of death will keep going on in INDIA. BJP po iticians now believe that they can do anything as they wish and there is no one to question them.
I've not seen such a shameless PM like Feku who is solely responsible for converting India into graveyard, even then this shameless person never missed ion rallies
So far none of the po iticians died due to oxygen shortage
By the way where are the chaddis who collected 4000 crores for Ram mandir, why don't we use that amount to meet current crisis.
How can Yeddyrappa and PM Modi sleep after this tragic news ???
Shameer i k
Died or killed?
sad truth.. hundreds dying.. no help.. may God b with them
Modi should resign on moral responsibility.
Let ppl die. They are born to be dead. But let's focus on next ion.
Karnataka has been a bastion to the BJP. no one will question this.
This would be national news if this happened in Delhi.
So sad. Repeat of the same tragedy here and there. Where are the oxygen con trators brought in huge numbers from abroad?
if modi has any shame , self respect he should leave PM post and apologize to whole India .
Still no one will resign or take ownership...such sad days
Do the rulers have a moral ? Should not they resign? People are dying choked off Air. What horrific deeds do we need more?
Why I should give income tax to go nment of India who failed to provide oxygen to citizens?
Really Sad. People dying due to shortage of oxygen. Wake up. We are still an underdeveloped country. Stop calling our country as develo country. Can't provide basic health services to people...
We deserve this for ing BJP
this is so Horrible.. people can't die like this
Like the High Court said, enough is enough. Who all are responsible for the sad state of affairs?
