Twenty COVID-19 patients admitted at a hospital in the Indian capital died due to a shortage of oxygen, officials said on Saturday.
The deaths took place at a private health institute, Jaipur Golden Hospital, in Delhi.
“We had been allotted 3.5 metric tons of oxygen from the government. The supply was to reach us by 5pm (local time) in the evening yesterday but it reached around midnight. By then, 20 patients had died,” D K Baluja, medical director at Jaipur Golden Hospital, said.
