Sit under pipal tree for oxygen: Helpless Covid patients in UP's Prayagraj told by police
Several patient relatives had gathered outside Prayagraj BJP MLA Harshvardhan Vajpayee's oxygen plant
Patients and relatives crying for oxygen in Uttar Pradesh's Prayagraj were told to sit below pipal trees to increase their oxygen saturation levels. The relatives running from one oxygen plant to another were left dumbfounded by the bizarre solution provided by the police.
A patient's relative, while speaking to Lallantop, broke down in tears while saying people are being asked to stay in home care instead of crowding hospitals, but they need oxygen even at home and no one's there to provide oxygen.
Several patient relatives had gathered outside Prayagraj BJP MLA Harshvardhan Vajpayee's oxygen plant, which the UP government has now taken over. Authorities deployed here to maintain law and order said priority is being given to hospitals for oxygen supply.
