India's Baba Raghav Das hospital, a public facility in the state of Uttar Pradesh, has come under scrutiny after some 60 children died in its care over the course of just five days. The hospital chief has been suspended amid allegations that many of the deaths stem from a shortage of oxygen supplies due to mismanagement and unpaid bills. Hospital staff and patients' families frantically attempted to provide manual oxygen support, but in many cases they were unsuccessful. "We will know — whether it was because of an oxygen shortage or due to a lack of proper treatment," promised top local official Yogi Adityanath. "Those found guilty will not be spared."
