Chattisgarh: Three children die in govt hospital after alleged drop in oxygen pressure

Days after a heart-wrenching incident happened in Gorakhpur, where at least 100 children died due to oxygen supply, three children died in a government hospital in BJP-ruled Chattisgarh’s Raipur, after an alleged drop in oxygen pressure.

News agency ANI reported that the incident happened late on Sunday night at BR Ambedkar Hospital.

Chief minister, Raman Singh, has expressed deep grief for the deaths and ordered a probe into the incident.

However, R Prasanna, director, Health Services, clarified that the incident happened due to illness and not because of the shortage of oxygen supply.

A similar incident happened in Yogi Adityanath’s citadel- Gorakhpur, where over 100 children died in a state-run hospital. The incident left the whole nation mourning over the deaths of the loss of innocent lives.
