Ujjain: COVID-19 patients died due to lack of oxygen supply, allege kin

Ujjain, Apr 8 (PTI) Some people, along with members of
the Congress, protested at the district hospital in Ujjain
city of Madhya Pradesh on Thursday, alleging that five members
of their families, who were undergoing treatment for
coronavirus, died due to lack of oxygen supply there.

These deaths were reported at the hospital located in
Madhav Nagar on Wednesday night.

However, talking to PTI, district collector Ashish
Singh said there was no problem of oxygen supply at the
facility.

“There were 132 coronavirus patients in the hospital
and 80 per cent of them are on oxygen support,” he added.

There certainly is a shortage of oxygen supply, but we
are making it available from different sources, he admitted.

“A patient”s relative might have got wrong information
that oxygen supply has dried up. Since then, there was this
furore,” the collector said.

Two patients died on Wednesday and as many on
Thursday, he said, adding that they were not coronavirus
patients.

“In such a big hospital, deaths occur everyday, but to
say that these deaths were caused due to lack of oxygen supply
is totally wrong,” he added.

Ujjain is the adjoining district of Indore, the
worst-hit district in Madhya Pradesh in terms of coronavirus
infection cases. PTI COR LAL
