A recently released report states that as many as 10 patients died in an hour due to lack of oxygen available at Nalasopara's Vinayak Hospital and Riddhivinayak Hospital. Officials state that this led to chaos at the hospital where upon knowing the news, relatives of the deceased rushed to the hospital to express their anger.

Meanwhile, the hospital administration has claimed that the patients died due to critical conditions and not due to oxygen.

The number of coronavirus patients in the state is increasing exponentially and the government has informed about the shortage of supply across several districts. In a recently released statement, former CM Prithviraj Chavan also expressed that the central government has not showed the support as requested. 

Currently, there is a shortage of oxygen and Remdesivir injections in the state due to which many COVID-19 patients are losing their lives . 

Reports state that both Vinayak Hospital and Riddhivinayak Hospital ran out of oxygen in the evening on Monday, April 12, 2021, due to which 10 coronavirus patients died within one hour in both the hospitals. This incident caused a big commotion outside the hospital on Monday night, where the relatives of the patients had gathered in large numbers demanding a response for the negligence. Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) workers had also gathered at this place. 

Meanwhile, 26 patients were shifted from Parking Plaza COVID Center to Global Hospital in Thane on Sunday, April 11, 2021, due to unavailability of oxygen. Furthermore, some patients did not get the necessary beds for treatment, and had to sit on the ground with makeshift arrangements.
