AP CM Jagan mourned the death of corona patients in Ruia hospital in Tirupati due to lack of oxygen. The CM held a video conference with collectors and SPs on the steps to be taken to overcome the shortage of beds and oxygen in the state.
Speaking on the occasion, he said, “The incident happened as the oxygen tankers from Tamilnadu did not arrive on time. Eleven people died at the hospital, officials said. Also, we sent 6 tankers on a flight to Odisha yesterday. We have done airlift to save transport time,” said Jagan. “We are buying oxygen in abroad and are bringing it through ships. We are trying every possible way to avoid oxygen shortage. All District Collectors should be vigilant and show humanity,” he said.
