Seven Corona patients died due to lack of continuous supply of oxygen at Khyber Teaching Hospital in Peshawar, the capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
According to the hospital administration, the incident took place on Sunday when oxygen supply to the patients was not provided in time. The patients died due to unavailability of continuous supply of oxygen.
Hospital officials said patients from other wards were also affected by the untimely delivery of oxygen cylinders.
A spokesman for Khyber Teaching Hospital said that oxygen cylinders were being supplied to the hospital from Rawalpindi but due to unavoidable reasons oxygen cylinders did not arrive from Rawalpindi in time. However, the investigations are being done in this regard. Five patients from isolation ward have been died due to unavailability of oxygen cylinders and two patients from ICU have also been died.
A spokesman for Khyber Teaching Hospital said that 100 oxygen cylinders were on standby and an investigation had already been launched into the incident.
