Death due to lack of oxygen: The case of death due to lack of oxygen in Delhi is getting deeper. During the second wave of the corona virus epidemic, there will be an investigation into the deaths due to lack of oxygen in the capital Delhi. The Delhi government has constituted a 4-member committee for this. Meanwhile, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has sent a file to Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal for approval to constitute a high-level committee. After his approval, this committee will start investigation in this matter. Manish Sisodia said that with this it will be possible to find out how many corona patients died due to lack of oxygen. At the same time, the Deputy CM said that he has also written a letter to Home Minister Amit Shah, urging him to instruct the LG not to stop the formation of the committee.
Delhi government decided to respond differently
Let us inform that in the second wave of corona, the central government has sought information about those who died due to lack of oxygen or treatment. But the Delhi government has decided to answer it differently. A senior health department official said that when the committee was formed by the Delhi government, the Lieutenant Governor had dissolved it. Therefore, in response to the letter, it has been asked to discuss the instruction letter of LG Anil Baijal. At present, how many people have died due to lack of oxygen, lack of beds or outside hospitals between April and June with the health department? There is no information related to this.
Not a single patient has died due to lack of oxygen
On the other hand, Delhi government hospitals have also claimed that not a single patient died due to lack of oxygen, including the central government’s AIIMS, RML and Safdarjung Hospital. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that the government’s Loknayak Hospital, DDU, Baba Bhimrao Ambedkar and Rajiv Gandhi Super Specialty Hospital have denied having any such record. Sisodia said that the central government first said that there was no death due to oxygen, then when the question arose, it was said that we have sought data from the states. The central government had asked to send the data on August 13.
