Medical Apathy in Chhattisgarh, 7 infants die due to oxygen scarcity

Just when the central government and the state government of Chhattisgarh are claiming that there have been no deaths due to shortage of oxygen during Covid-19, seven newborns die due to lack of oxygen in the capital city Raipur, Chattisgarh. The Health Minister of the state, T.S. Deo has categorically come out and said to Times of India that no lives have been lost due to oxygen scarcity. In fact, the state has always had oxygen in abundance. While talking to the kins of the deceased infants, it was revealed that out of the 7 children 3 of them lost their lives due to the inability of the administration to provide oxygen cylinders prerequisite for shifting the children to private hospitals. The hospital authorities didn't break silence on the deaths of 7 infants in the last 24 hours. However, the collector claims that only two deaths have been reported which he attributes to the children's critical stages. The families kept wailing with the bodies of their children. At around 4 o'clock in the morning, the police somehow pacified the families. The hospital administration, on the other hand, claims that the children's deaths were natural and not caused by lack of oxygen.
