The Union Health Minister, Bharti Praveen Pawar, said in the Rajya Sabha that no one died of lack of oxygen in the corona wave, but the reality is exactly the opposite. In the second wave of devastation, many patients were not admitted due to lack of oxygen. The patients had died on the doorstep of the hospital. Ambulances would bring the patients and then run away. In the absence of oxygen in other hospitals, 30 patients were rushed to the hospital in private ambulances, even though they died on the way. In the Hallett emergency, patients were asked to bring oxygen bottles. The 30 patients who died after being admitted to the hospital are counted among the corona-related deaths, but the hospital does not have exact names and address details. The family returned and cried that if oxygen had been available lives would have been saved. At that time, Halt Emergency’s bed was doubling and tripling and the patients were split up with a cylinder.
