Mohol claimed, “No account is being kept of these deaths, because these patients are either brought to the hospital in a dead state or they die soon after arriving there.”
The Mayor said, “As per the guidelines, no investigation is done on the dead person. But when doctors do X-rays of these people, then they show symptoms of Kovid-19. ” He said that while taking this issue with the Chief Minister, he demanded to take steps to prevent such deaths.
Mohol said, “Patients should be detected early so that they can get timely treatment and prevent such deaths.” Following the allegations, District Magistrate Naval Kishore Ram said that an inquiry would be conducted in this regard and a report has been sought from Sassoon Hospital. He said, “District administration personnel keep visiting Sassoon Hospital and check the records. It is less likely that any wrong information or less information is being given in Pune. ”
The District Magistrate said, “There may be some issues related to data entry. But the figures mentioned by the honorable mayor seem impossible. But we will conduct an impartial inquiry as I have sought a report from Sassoon. “
