Lucknow journalist dies gasping for oxygen after contracting COVID-19; kin squarely blame Yogi govt
As per experts, oxygen saturation in the blood below the level of 94 is considered a matter of concern for people suffering from Covid-19.
Srivastava said the level was 52 when he tweeted for the first time around 8 pm on Friday to say that no hospital in Lucknow was responding to his phone calls.
Incidentally, government-run Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Civil Hospital, is just about 7 km away from Srivastava’s home.
As per media reports, it is one of the 150 district hospitals across India for which the Central government floated tenders in October last year for starting an oxygen production plant. However, nothing has been done so far on the ground to start the plant.
