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. The horror at GMCH is continuing even as the Goa bench of the Bombay High Court is hearing petitions related to deaths during the “dark hours” (between 2 am and 6 am) at the premier hospital. While the state government has not revealed the exact cause of recent deaths at the GMCH, it has told the High Court that there were “logistic issues” related to supply of medical oxygen to patients.
