UP Govt says 'no oxygen shortage'; Congress seeks action against Yogi”

After Gorakhpur tragedy in Uttar Pradesh, the state government appears to have taken no lesson, as 49 kids have died on Monday, at Farrukhabad's Ram Manohar Lohia government hospital due to a condition called "perinatal asphyxia" - a condition in which the child can not breathe properly. Earlier, a police FIR has been registered against the director of oxygen supplying firm, BRD Hospital's Dr Kafeel Khan and 7 others in the case. "No shortage of oxygen has been reported and to say so is to sensationalise the matter", he said. It has now been learnt that the district magistrate has also been removed.

"The way things have been presented is not that has happened".

12 August: News emerges that at least 60 children died in Baba Raghav Das hospital in Gorakhpur. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath tried his best to cover up the situation at Gorakhpur's BRD hospital, but the recent deaths in the Farrukhabad district hospital clearly state that they are not able to handle the situation there. "Also, he said Chief minister should ask the minister to go". The deaths were reported from July 20 to August 21 this year. Another 19 infants, who did not survive childbirth, were not part of the government report, the news agency said.

According to HINDUSTAN TIMES During this period, 211 children were admitted at SNCU and 30 of them died. There were 19 cases of stillborn births while the condition of 66 toddlers was found to be critical, on top of six infants who died during treatment.

However, an official said, most of the children died from "perinatal asphyxia", a condition in which a newborn has trouble breathing.

He further said a team would soon be sent from the state capital to check the "factual and technical aspects" of the incident so that the "exact reason for the death of infants could be ascertained". "Farrukhabad DM Ravindra Kumar, CMO Umakant Pandey and CMS Akhilesh Agarwal have been shifted", Principal Secretary (Health) Prashant Trivedi said in Lucknow on Monday.

Office bearers of the state medical associations informed that they have made a decision to be on leave till September 7 disrupting medical services in the government hospitals.
