15 more Covid patients die at Goa hospital as oxygen dips again
PANAJI: Tragedy struck the Goa Medical College (GMC) yet again on Thursday, with 15 Covid-19 patients dying due to erratic supply of oxygen.
As many as 26 patients had died at the premier state-run hospital on Tuesday. A day after, on Wednesday, the Bombay high court had directed the Goa go nment to ensure that there are no more casualties at the hospital due to oxygen shortage.
There were also unconfirmed reports of some deaths on Wednesday.
“The oxygen interruptions are causing problems leading to deaths. Last night, the interruption that was caused between midnight and 8am caused 15 deaths,” GMC nodal officer Dr Viraj Khandeparkar told the high court, which is hearing a PIL regarding oxygen shortage.
The horror unfolded around 1:25am on Thursday when relatives began making SOS calls saying that oxygen levels were drop at GMC. Wards 143, 144, 145, 146 and 149 faced oxygen shortage.
How come Feku still cms that the country has no shortage of oxygen? It seems that Feku just sits by and waits unless and until SC orders him to take action. On top of that, a huge amount of foreign aid has arrived in India. There is simply no excuse for not delivering the vital medical supplies to any state and UT
Urgent need to build statue and temple to solve this problem. Goa go nment should immediately sanction a statue and a temple. If possible please organise large scale re gious gathering like in kumbh, that will also benefit the people.
If this happens two times over , the HC should jail the health minister and health secretary for gross dereliction of duty. The patients should be allowed to sue the hospital and sue the go nment because of poor logistics planning. What kind of country is this
No lecture at 8 pm also. He seems to have vanished. Anyway he never gave press conferences
Oxygen supply died due to a 15 minute delay of a fork lift is BS. They should be having a day's reserve not 15 minutes of oxygen reserve. Terrible tragedy is playing out day after day. I hope families without children can easily adopt these orphaned children.
Trained Staff shortage could be reason, due to covid.
Now the media is controlled from showing mortals being cremated and reporting on oxygen shortages.De acy at stake
Mass murder by GMC CMO and DM must be hanged for this murder if not then CM and Judiciary is accountable and they must be stoned to death by people of this country.
The.courts should take Cognizant ag inst the CM and Health Minister for giving Oxygen to Maharashtra, when it's own people of the state were dying due to shortage of oxygen. This is a mass murder knowingly and willing a part taken in such.act.
Severe penalties as for murder, and jail must be prescribed for default by Oxygen suppliers AND those who failed to order well in time. These must be treated as criminal rather than contractual default.
Ruled by bjp and oxygen distribution planned by bjp....now bhaktas will be confused whom to blame ....
Wish feku and hippo died due to covid. At least the country could get back on the path of real growth.
how long godi will keep quiet ....is he dead ???
delhi is the top priority, let the rest of india die...ask delhi HC what they have to say about this..
It seems hospital administrative sy em is totally col psed and need drastic change.State health minister, health Secretary should be made accountable and jailed and patients kin should sue hospital for irreparable dges

Must pray and work together for each other irrespective of fa ths and casts. Fight hard with prayers on lips and take all possible precautions. May the lord show mercy on helpless public and bless with health and prosperity.
All out effort is needed to augment supply of oxygen medicines and vaccines.
Why can't these people keep a buffer zone and not wait for the nthhour to replenish oxygen? How can they be so dismissive of lives?
