PTI Sources said "low pressure oxygen" could be the likely cause for the deaths, but Dr D S Rana, the chairman of the hospital, said, "It was wrong to say so."

Padma Shri recipient, Dr Mohsin Wali, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital also stated that the news should not be sensationalised because these were extremely sick patients who did not die because of lack of oxygen.

According to reports, Ganga Ram, one of Delhi's top private hospitals, is treating more than 500 Covid patients. Of them, 142 are on high-flow oxygen support, the hospital says.
