NMC’s Nehru Nagar zone officials had belatedly shifted her into the CCC on Tuesday though she had tested positive around eight days back. As per doctors, the woman should have been first taken to a dedicated Covid health centre (DCHC) or hospital (DCH) for screening if officials felt the need to shift her so late during home isolation.
CCC officials said the woman’s blood oxygen saturation level was above the required 95 at 10.30pm when the staff last checked her on Tuesday. She had told them that she was asthmatic and suffered hypothyroidism though her case papers didn’t mention these issues.
This is the second death at the VNIT CCC and third in any CCC in Nagpur city. The CCCs don’t have oxygen facility.
