Andhra Pradesh: 11 Covid patients die due to lag in Oxygen supply at hospital

May 11, 2021 08:18 IST | By Editorji News Desk

At least 11 Covid-19 patients died due to a snag in oxygen supply inside the ICU in Ruia Hospital in Andhra Pradesh's Tirupati late on Monday night.

Officials said there was a five-minute lag in reloading the oxygen cylinder that caused the pressure to drop, resulting in the deaths.

Chittoor district Collector M Hari Narayanan said there was no scarcity of oxygen in the hospital and adequate supply was in place. In all, about 700 Covid-19 patients were undergoing treatment in the ICU and oxygen beds in Ruia while another 300 were in normal wards.

Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy expressed grief over the incident and directed the officials to ensure that such incidents did not recur.
