Center's statement of 'not a single death due to lack of oxygen', how much truth, how much lie
In March and April this year, when the second wave of the corona was at its peak, an 'oxygen crisis' arose. There were many reports of people wandering from door to door to find oxygen cylinders for their families and deaths due to lack of oxygen.
There were allegations that hospitals were not admitting people due to lack of oxygen. Due to this, many people lost their lives out of the streets and in hospitals. But the central government said on Tuesday that there was no death due to lack of oxygen in the second wave of the corona.
Whereas, based on the media reports of April-May and the statements of the governments, only 221 people died in six states including Delhi, Goa, Haryana, Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Andhra Pradesh.
After this statement of the government, now the politics has heated up on it and its opposition has started everywhere. When the Health Minister was asked in the Rajya Sabha whether a large number of patients died in the road and hospitals due to lack of oxygen, the Minister of State for Health, Bharti Praveen Pawar, in a written reply, said that the state and the Union Territory due to Corona. Reports of deaths are regularly given to the Union Health Ministry.
