PESHAWAR: Seven coronavirus patients passed away at the Peshawar’s Khyber Teaching Hospital recently as oxygen cylinders from Rawalpindi failed to arrive on time.
Hospital sources disclosed that patients in other wards of the hospital were also facing difficulties due to the absence of oxygen cylinders.
Meanwhile, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Health Minister Taimur Saleem Jhagra said that he has ordered the authorities to submit an inquiry report on the matter within 48 hours. He added that most of the patients who died were infected with coronavirus.
The health minister said that if the inquiry report is not deemed satisfactory, the provincial government will hold its own in-depth investigation.
