Continuing the string of deaths in Gorakhpur’s Baba Raghav Das (BRD) Medical College and Hospital, at least 30 children have lost their live in span of 48 hours.
BRD Medical College Professor Dr. DK Shrivastava told that 15 children died in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) while 15 others took their last breath in the Paediatrics Intensive Care Unit (PICU) of the hospital.
According to hospital officials, 1,470 children were admitted in BRD hospital out of which 310 could not be saved.
In August, the BRD hospital made headlines worldwide after 63 children including infants died in a span of 7 days due to disruption in supply of liquid oxygen over non-payment of dues.
Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath had to face severe critisim from the Opposition parties as the BRD medical college is located in his own constituency Gorakhpur and he even visited the hospital few days before the mass deaths.
