After the lack of oxygen due to corona across the country, the outcry is killing hundreds of people every day. Now at least 24 patients of corona virus have died due to lack of oxygen in a hospital in Chamrajnagar district of Karnataka. Chamrajnagar district is about 175 km from Bengaluru. Karnataka Health Minister K Sudhakar has left for Chamrajnagar to take stock of the situation. The district in-charge minister S Suresh Kumar has ordered an inquiry into the matter.
S Suresh Kumar said that strict action will be taken against those who are responsible for the lack of oxygen.
“There was a shortage of oxygen and the oxygen coming from the neighboring Mysore district also did not reach on time,” the source said. The accident took place in a government hospital in the district.
After this incident, the Karnataka government’s claim is once again being questioned in which they said that there is no shortage of oxygen, medicines, vaccines and even space in the crematorium in the state. At the same time, the ground reality is telling something else.
Many people have died due to lack of beds, oxygen and medicines in Karnataka, which is among the worst affected states of Corona.
Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa has spoken to senior officials on Monday and assured them to supply all the necessary requirements. The Chief Minister has also called an emergency cabinet meeting on Tuesday.
Let us know that 37 thousand 733 new cases of corona virus have been registered in Karnataka on Sunday, while 217 people died due to corona. Out of these, 21 thousand 149 new cases have been reported in Bengaluru alone. So far, more than 16 thousand people have lost their lives due to corona in the state.
