22 dead after Indian hospital shuts off oxygen for 5 minutes in order to know who would survive

Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday slammed the government over reports that a private hospital in Uttar Pradesh’s Agra allegedly cut off oxygen supply for five minutes in a "mock drill" in April. Priyanka Gandhi also tweeted the video in which Dr Arinjay Jain, the owner of Paras Hospital, is heard saying that the oxygen supply was cut off for five minutes and 22 people died during that period.

“There is a severe shortage of both oxygen and humanity under the BJP rule. Action should be taken immediately against all those responsible for this dangerous crime,” Rahul Gandhi also posted on Twitter. “My condolences to the families of the deceased in this hour of grief,” he added.

“PM: 'I made sure there was no shortage of oxygen' CM: 'There’s no shortage of oxygen. The property of those spreading rumours about shortage will be confiscated.' Minister: 'Give just enough oxygen patients need. Don't give too much oxygen.' Agra hospital: 'There was no oxygen. Mock drill was conducted by turning off oxygen for 22 patients.' Who's responsible?” Priyanka Gandhi tweeted in Hindi.

Paras Hospital’s Dr Jain, who is not visible in the video, is heard saying in the 1.3-minute audio clip that they were told that even the chief minister cannot provide oxygen so they should start discharging patients.

"Then I decided to try something out - a mock drill of sorts - and asked the staff to identify those whose oxygen supply can be cut. That way, we will get to know who will die and who will survive,” Jain is heard saying in the video.

“The mock drill happened at 7am, no one knows about this. Twenty-two patients started gasping for breath and their bodies began turning blue. We came to know that they will not survive," he added.

Officials in Agra said they have ordered a probe after the video surfaced and district magistrate Prabhu N Singh denied that 22 patients died that day. “Seven patients, including Covid infected, died in a private hospital due to alleged oxygen shortage on April 26 and 27 There were 22 critical patients admitted in the hospital but have no details of their death. We will look into the video which has surfaced about their death,” Singh was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

Chief medical officer Dr RC Pandey also said only seven patients died in the hospital during that period and the the health department has began an investigation into the issue.

Good news! US to buy 500M Pfizer vaccines to share globally

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. will buy 500 million more doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to share through the global COVAX alliance for donation to 92 lower income countries and the African Union over the next year, a person familiar with the matter said Wednesday.

President Joe Biden was set to make the announcement Thursday in a speech before the start of the Group of Seven summit. Two hundred million doses — enough to fully protect 100 million people — would be shared this year, with the balance to be donated in the first half of 2022, the person said.

How is that a "mock drill" if you are really turning off the oxygen? :blink:

It's a little unclear whether the headline is accurate, or if some of those 22 people had their oxygen switched back on before they actually died.

India sees COVID 24-Hour death toll spike to a world record of 6,148 after the state of Bihar revised its figures to account for deaths at home or in private hospitals

India has reported its highest ever single-day death toll from COVID-19 – 6,148 deaths – after an eastern state sharply raised its figures to account for people who succumbed to the disease at home or in private hospitals.

The health department of Bihar, one of India’s poorest states, revised its total COVID-related death toll on Wednesday to more than 9,400 from about 5,400. India’s total COVID caseload now stands at nearly 29.2 million after rising by 94,052 in the past 24 hours, while total fatalities are at 359,676, according to data from the health ministry.

The country has recorded fewer than 100,000 daily new COVID cases for three straight days. Active cases stand at nearly 1.17 million, according to the ministry. A total of 242.7 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered nationwide, including 3.4 million over the last 24 hours, the health ministry said.

India has the second-highest number of coronavirus cases in the world after the US. It stands third behind the US and Brazil in terms of COVID deaths.

Bihar revised its toll after the regional High Court asked for an audit of casualties during the second wave of the coronavirus in April and May.

The court’s order followed allegations that the state government was hiding the scale of infections and deaths. An audit of deaths revealed that while 1,600 people died of COVID in Bihar between March 2020 and March 2021, the number of deaths from April to June 7 this year was a staggering 7,775, about six times more, India’s NDTV reported.

State capital Patna bore the brunt of the outbreak, accounting for a total of 2,303 deaths, media reports said. The discovery of thousands of unreported deaths in Bihar lends weight to suspicion that India’s overall death tally is significantly more than the official figure.

Indian hospitals ran out of beds and life-saving oxygen during a devastating second wave of coronavirus in April and May and people died in parking lots outside hospitals and at their homes. Many of those deaths were not recorded in COVID-19 tallies, doctors and health experts say.

The newly reported deaths had occurred last month and state officials were investigating the lapse, a district health official said, blaming the oversight on private hospitals.

“These deaths occurred 15 days ago and were only uploaded now in the government portal. Action will be taken against some of the private hospitals,” said the official, who declined to be identified as he is not authorised to speak to the media. Health experts say they believe both coronavirus infections and deaths are being significantly undercounted across the country partly because test facilities are rare in rural areas, where two-thirds of Indians live, and hospitals are few and far between.

Many people have fallen ill and died at home without being tested for the coronavirus.

As crematoriums struggled to handle the wave of deaths over the past two months, many families placed bodies in the Ganges river or buried them in shallow graves on its sandbanks.

Those people would likely not have been registered as COVID victims.

“Under-reporting is a widespread problem, not necessarily deliberate, often because of inadequacies,” Rajib Dasgupta, head of the Centre of Social Medicine and Community Health at New Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University, told Reuters news agency.

“In the rural context, whatever states may say or claim, testing is not simple, easy or accessible,” Dasgupta said.

The New York Times estimated deaths based on death counts over time and infection fatality rates and put India’s toll at 600,000 to 1.6 million.

The government dismissed those estimates as exaggerated. But the main opposition Congress party said that other states must follow Bihar’s example and conduct a review of deaths over the past two months.

“This proves beyond a doubt government has been hiding COVID deaths,” said Shama Mohamed, a spokeswoman for Congress, adding that an audit should also be ordered in the big states of Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat.

NI is planning on reducing the amount of time between 1st and 2nd doses

Going from 10-12 week gaps to 8 week gaps. Its being done to offer more protection against the Indian variant that has popped up a bit in NI lately so they can increase the numbers of fully vaccinated people.

I wont be getting my second dose moved forward though since its already planned.

Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday slammed the government over reports that a private hospital in Uttar Pradesh’s Agra allegedly cut off oxygen supply for five minutes in a "mock drill" in April. Priyanka Gandhi also tweeted the video in which Dr Arinjay Jain, the owner of Paras Hospital, is heard saying that the oxygen supply was cut off for five minutes and 22 people died during that period.

“There is a severe shortage of both oxygen and humanity under the BJP rule. Action should be taken immediately against all those responsible for this dangerous crime,” Rahul Gandhi also posted on Twitter. “My condolences to the families of the deceased in this hour of grief,” he added.

“PM: 'I made sure there was no shortage of oxygen' CM: 'There’s no shortage of oxygen. The property of those spreading rumours about shortage will be confiscated.' Minister: 'Give just enough oxygen patients need. Don't give too much oxygen.' Agra hospital: 'There was no oxygen. Mock drill was conducted by turning off oxygen for 22 patients.' Who's responsible?” Priyanka Gandhi tweeted in Hindi.

Paras Hospital’s Dr Jain, who is not visible in the video, is heard saying in the 1.3-minute audio clip that they were told that even the chief minister cannot provide oxygen so they should start discharging patients.

"Then I decided to try something out - a mock drill of sorts - and asked the staff to identify those whose oxygen supply can be cut. That way, we will get to know who will die and who will survive,” Jain is heard saying in the video.

“The mock drill happened at 7am, no one knows about this. Twenty-two patients started gasping for breath and their bodies began turning blue. We came to know that they will not survive," he added.

Officials in Agra said they have ordered a probe after the video surfaced and district magistrate Prabhu N Singh denied that 22 patients died that day. “Seven patients, including Covid infected, died in a private hospital due to alleged oxygen shortage on April 26 and 27 There were 22 critical patients admitted in the hospital but have no details of their death. We will look into the video which has surfaced about their death,” Singh was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

Chief medical officer Dr RC Pandey also said only seven patients died in the hospital during that period and the the health department has began an investigation into the issue.

Fuck. I feel like they could have made their drill shorter to figure this out without killing anyone.

If you read to the end it seems like it probably didn't. Or, at the very least it is unclear. And actually this may have been a somewhat reasonable (albeit regrettable) thing to do.

Basically they were ordered to make room in the hospital, and needed to know who could be taken off oxygen without dying. So they shut off oxygen to find out, and 22 patients reacted poorly. But it's not clear that any of them died. Only that they started gasping for breath and turning blue.

Now testing the system of a sick person like that is almost certainly not medically advisable, but it does make the point that "we cannot discharge this person from the hospital or they will die" very clearly. And you get the sense that this is what they were trying to show.

That is unbelievably disturbing and sick. I hope none of the sick peoples families were in the room or they're gonna need like 20 years of therapy for that, or one second of a men in black flash stick.

Can confirm. Got my vaccine and as soon as I walked into the kitchen I was bombarded with magnets flying off our fridge and onto me. At first it sucked but then I realized that magnets make quite the attractive accessory. :p

Ireland might be opening up vaccination bookings for people in their 30s from next week. If so, then on Monday anyone who's 39 will be able to make an appointment for a good jabbing, then anyone who's 38 can book on Tuesday, and so on in that fashion over the next two weeks.

Talk about attracting and repelling each other.

The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion … but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.
