A video purportedly of a director of a private nursing home in Agra claiming several Covid patients died as a result of a mock exercise that allegedly cut off medical oxygen supply, has gone viral.
Both Agra District Magistrate P.N. Singh and CMO R.C. Pandey on Tuesday reacted to the development, saying an inquiry has been ordered and action would follow on the basis of its report.
