More than 60 people died in a hospital in Indonesia this weekend after oxygen supplies nearly ran out, as the country battles a severe wave of Covid-19 that authorities say is driven by the more infectious Delta variant.
At least 63 patients died during treatment for COVID-19 in the hospital since Saturday — 33 of them during the period when the central liquid oxygen supply ran out — even though the hospital switched to using oxygen cylinders during the outage, a hospital official said.
Indonesian ministers found the oxygen shortages in some regions after the statement that guaranteed the oxygen supplied few days ago.
What people are saying?
P.Srinivas Reddy Oxygen so important for covid patient but my kind request to is add cardiac treatment (heart)along with covid treatment many patients have suffered form cardiac arrest blood is getting clotted after infection, blockages leads to shortage of respiration that leads to oxygen demand.
Dr Sumeet Shah It’s really sad. To see this is kind of deja vu for us in Delhi. Delta variant burnt through the society in India. I hope supplies are restored on war footing. Indonesia needs all the global support possible.
