In yet another tragic incident, at least 55 infants died last month in a Nashik district hospital due to lack of ventilators and oxygen cylinders.
“In the month of August we have had 55 deaths, the main reason is that we have no ventilators.
We got sanction for 21 beds, new maternal wing, but the problem is that we need to cut a tree and have not got permission till now,” Dr GM Hole told .
In August, around 350 kids were admitted in the hospital and out of those 55 kids lost their life due to the deficiency of oxygen gas, ventilator and other health facilities.
In past five months, around 187 kids have lost their life due to lack of health facilities.
