Maharashtra: 24 Covid patients die after oxygen tank leak at Nashik hospital

At least 24 COVID-19 patients on ventilator support suffocated to death on Wednesday when their oxygen supply stopped suddenly because of a malfunction in the main storage at a civic-run hospital in Nashik in Maharashtra, officials said.

Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope said that the government will probe if the tragedy at the Dr Zakir Husain Hospital was due to negligence.

According to the media reports, a private company looked after the tank maintenance at the hospital, District Collector Suraj Mandhare said, adding technicians closed the tank valve preventing more deaths.
