Go­rakh­pur, In­dia

The Week Middle East - - News -

Child deaths: At least 64 chil­dren died last week at a state-run hos­pi­tal in Ut­tar Pradesh, after oxy­gen sup­plies ran out. The firm that pro­vides the oxy­gen cut off sup­plies to Go­rakh­pur’s Baba Raghav Das Hos­pi­tal fol­low­ing a dis­pute over an un­paid bill. Des­per­ate par­ents tried to use hand­held pumps to push air into their chil­dren’s lungs, to no avail. Pub­lic out­rage has been di­rected at the rul­ing BJP party, which has promised an

in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
