As many as 75 Covid-19 patients have died in the last four days at Goa Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), the state’s largest Covid facility, owing to “logistic issues” in the supply of medical oxygen. The toll climbed up with the death of 13 more patients on Friday. On Thursday, 15 deaths were recorded, the day before — Wednesday — 21 people died, and on Tuesday, 26 people had lost their lives.
