30 children die in Gorakhpur hospital

BRDMC hospital

Deep Chand had stepped out to buy medicines for his 10-day-old son, admitted to the neo-natal ward of the BRD Medical College in Gorakhpur. "For the moment, these are the only information we have", said to AFP by telephone, a senior official of the local police, Satyarth Aniruddha Pankaj. Samajwadi Party and the Congress have sought the resignation of Singh. "The delivery of oxygen, was halted yesterday (Thursday) but the hospital has enough tanks in reserve", he told AFP.

Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi termed the Gorakhpur tragedy as "massacre". The country is set to celebrate the 70th anniversary of its independence from Great Britain on Tuesday.

However, the hospital still owes Rs. 20 lakh to the company.

After the reports have surfaced, it is rumoured that two more lives have been lost due to this. The agreement expired July 31, and Pushpa discontinued the oxygen supply August 4. What is shocking to know is that the oxygen supply department in the hospital had already warned about shortage. Hence there was no oxygen shortage. It is pertinent to mention that soon after assuming office as UP chief minister in March this year, Yogi Adityanath said at the King George's Medical University in Lucknow that the state health system was in need of rehaul.

When it was pointed that the incident happened despite a visit to the hospital by Mr. Adityanath on Wednesday, Mr. Singh clarified that the hospital authorities did not inform Mr. Adityanath of the crisis in oxygen cylinder supply during his visit.

Neonatal and encephalitis wards are reported most deaths.

Addressing a programme, CM Yogi was quoted saying by ANI, "Encephalitis disease has been there since 1978".

Sadly, hundreds of children dying every year at the BRD Medical College are not a new phenomenon. She responding to treatment while on oxygen, he said, but her condition deteriorated as the cylinders ran dry that night. While it is a practice that till new tender formalities are not completed, the supplier is asked to continue as a stop gap arrangement, in this case it was not done, he said. "I am ready to hear the worst about my child", he said amid flowing tears. For seven hours, the man was driven from hospital to hospital before arriving at a government one, where he was declared dead on arrival.
