oxygen-

​​​​​HYDERABAD: Seven Covid patients admitted to the government-run King Koti Hospital in Hyderabad lost their lives after an oxygen tanker heading to the hospital lost its way.

The delay cost a disruption in oxygen supply and seven patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital died on Sunday after the pressure of oxygen dropped.

The oxygen tank at the hospital was showing low pressure from the afternoon and the authorities sought a refill. But the tanker carrying oxygen lost its way while heading to the hospital.

The Naryanguda police of Hyderabad traced the tanker and guided it to the hospital, but seven patients had already lost their lives by then.

However, officials remain tight-lipped on the incident amid questions on whether the taker was not provided with a green corridor which led to the tragedy.
