30 children die in hospital in Uttar Pradesh - medical official

30 children die due to disruption of oxygen supply at ups gorakhpur

Thirty children have died at a hospital in Uttar Pradesh since Wednesday due to encephalitis and delivery-related issues, a senior medical official said on Friday.

A high-level magisterial probe has been ordered into the incident.

Gorakhpur is the parliamentary constituency of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, but not a word of condolence has yet been heard from him. He further added that the children might have died due to encephalitis and not due to shortage of oxygen supply. "We ensured oxygen supply to all the kids and no death has been reported due to insufficiency of oxygen", Shukla said. Most of the victims were encephalitis patients.

Denis Suarez and Andre Gomes have been struggling to settle at Camp Nou, so Coutinho does seem like the best option for them. This is a special club and I can understand why he feels compelled to go after it.

Meanwhile, former UP CM Akhilesh Yadav tweeted "Yogi government responsible for the deaths of children, strict action should be taken against the culprits, 20 lakh Rs. compensation should be given to the families of deceased children".

The deaths highlight the challenges faced in India's underfunded public health system, where successive governments have failed to address the acute shortage of staff and clinics.

Terming the death of children as unfortunate, UP Congress President Raj Babbar said, "It shows the insensitivity of the the state government".

According to Hindustan Times, dues amounting to Rs 67 lakh were allegedly not paid by the hospital authorities to the suppliers, which prompted them to choke the oxygen supply. Despite several reminders and no progress in payment, the cylinder supply was stopped. And almost 23 passed away by Friday afternoon, he was reported as saying. The CM had taken stock of treatment for encephalitis virus during his recent two-day visit to Gorakhpur. The children who died were admitted in three wards at the hospital.

Citing a break-up of casualties since August 7 till date, he said according to reports from the paediatric department of the college, 60 children have died due to various diseases during the period. The medical college has a liquid oxygen plant, which was installed two years ago. In a tweet on twitter platform, he also expressed hopelessness due to the deaths of over 50000 childrens, since encephalitis first case was diagnosed in 1978. "A final picture will be clear after a report on it comes", said state health minister Siddharthnath Singh.
