Six patients admitted to the Corona Intensive Care Cell (ICU) ward died due to reduced pressure of medical oxygen supply at the hospital in Shahdol district of Madhya Pradesh.

Dr. Milind Shiralkar, dean of the Government Medical College said that there were 62 serious patients admitted in the ICU ward of the Kovid-19 Center of the Medical College. Six of these patients died late last night due to the reduced pressure of liquid oxygen. He said that the other serious patient is safe.
Shiralkar said that experts have been called and the cause of the incident is being ascertained. He said that Shahdol Medical College has an Oxygen plant with a storage capacity of 10 KLD. For this, liquid oxygen comes from outside states because it is not produced in Madhya Pradesh. Shiralkar told that till late Saturday evening
As the oxygen was running out, the institution that provided the liquid oxygen was constantly in contact, but the vehicle did not arrive until late at night with the liquid oxygen, which reduced the oxygen pressure given to the patients.

After all, how long will there be death due to lack of oxygen in the state?
