In the Goa Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) operated by the Government of Goa, 26 korana patients died in the morning. Goa Health Minister Vishwajit Rane gave this information on Tuesday. He said that the case should be investigated by the High Court to find out the exact cause of death. According to Rane, the death of these patients occurred between 2 pm and 6 am “which is a fact”, but the cause of death is not clear. Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant, who visited GMCH, said , ‘Due to the difference between the availability of medical oxygen and its supply upto 19 wards in GMCH, Kovid has caused some problems to the patients.’ He also stressed that there is no shortage of oxygen in the state.
On the other hand, Rane, while talking to reporters, on Monday acknowledged the lack of oxygen supply at GMCH. After the Chief Minister’s GMCH visit, the Health Minister said, ‘The High Court should investigate to find out the appropriate causes of death. HC should intervene in the matter and prepare white paper (white paper) regarding supply of oxygen to GMCH, which will help in fixing things. ‘
