Over 30 Children Have Died In Hospital As Parents Blame Oxygen Supply
This is beyond heartbreaking….
Parents of at least 35 children who have died in a hospital in northern India over the past three days have alleged the fatalities were due to a lack of oxygen supply in the children’s ward.
According to The Examiner, the oxygen supply ran out on Thursday night and relatives were given self-inflating bags to help children breathe.
And now the Uttar Pradesh government has ordered an investigation into the 35 deaths.
The parents said the company that supplies oxygen to the hospital had earlier threatened to stop oxygen distribution unless the government paid their long overdue bills.
The hospital, which has become a major centre for children with encephalitis, has treated nearly 370 cases in the last two months.
Out of all of these, 129 children have died.
