Children Die In Gorakhpur Hospital Due To Alleged Disruption Of Oxygen Supply

12 August 2017

The tragedy comes barely two days after Yogi Adityanath's visit to Gorakhpur.

Rautela further said that an inquiry committee has been set up to ascertain the exact causes of the deaths and it has been asked to submit its report by tomorrow evening. Hence there was no oxygen shortage.

State health minister Siddharthnath Singh dismissed reports that an oxygen shortage killed the children. Principal of BRD Medical College Rajeev Mishra, who left Gorakhpur for Delhi on Friday, reportedly knew about the non-payment of dues, but took no corrective steps.

Notably, CM Aditynath visited BRD hospital on Wednesday and inaugurated ten-bed ICU, a six-bed Critical Care Unit facility.

Nearly, thirty children lost their lives in the past 48 hours reportedly due to infections and disruption of oxygen supply in the paediatrics ward in the hospital, although the district administration have rejected that latter as a reason for deaths.

He told Sky Sports News: "When a player leaves a club, you do not normally see a manager speak so glowingly about them". They are bit like Real Madrid in this sense - they don't value the manager like other clubs.

Parents said oxygen supply to the ward ran out Thursday night and patients' families were given self-inflating bags to help the children breathe.

The children were admitted at the Baba Raghav Das Hospital in Gorakhpur district of northern Uttar Pradesh, India's most populated state ruled by the right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party.

Taking a swipe at the Uttar Pradesh health minister, the Congress leader tweeted, "UP Health Minister only seeks votes in Lal Bahadur Shastri ji's name -he doesn't follow Shastri ji's high morals in politics".

Prashant Trivedi, the state's top health official, admitted there was a problem in the pipeline supplying oxygen. The children died allegedly after oxygen supply was cut, TV reports said.

Rautela said a magisterial investigation had been ordered into the deaths.

Party Vice President Rahul Gandhi also blamed the state government for the tragedy.

However, local sources said the legal action was on the cards against the firm accused of breaking the oxygen supply abruptly.

Meanwhile, according to data procured from the BRD hospital, in past five days - from August 7 to August 11, a total of 60 deaths have occurred in the hospital.

They said that around ten children had died on Thursday while ten others breathed their last on Friday. She said the children were victims of "gross negligence and incorrigible misconduct on part of the authorities".
