A corona patient admitted in New Medical College Hospital of Kota died allegedly due to lack of oxygen supply on Tuesday.
The superintendent of the hospital, Nilesh Jain said, “We faced a 2-5 minute disturbance due to lack of cylinders resulting in the death of a woman. The amount of pressure to operate ventilator had gone down.”
The state health minister Raghu Sharma on Tuesday requested the Centre to ramp up the supply of medical-use oxygen to the state to meet the heightened demand due to the spike in the number of coronavirus cases.
He said the state has adequate number of beds as of now and can raise the number further up to three lakh, but it needs more oxygen to treat coronavirus patients.
