At least 11 COVID-19 patients have lost their lives on Wednesday at Nashik’s Dr. Zakir Hussain Hospital after Oxygen tank leakage.
Leakage from an oxygen tank at the hospital caused disruption in vital oxygen supply for at least half an hour, which allegedly resulted in the deaths of several patients who were on ventilator support.
State Health Minister Rajesh Tope said a probe would be ordered into the incident. A fire brigade team as well as technicians rushed to the spot of the mishap.
There were around 150 patients – of whom 127 were on oxygen and the remaining 23 on ventilator.
