With patients on brink, GMC’s SOS calls to CMO unanswered

Since April 4, Goa Medical College (GMC) has been frantically sending SOS calls, even to the chief minister’s office, pleading for oxygen supply to be restored as close to 500 patient’s lives were at risk. The phone calls, around 20 of them in a short span of an hour, went unanswered even as patients convulsed, gasped and died at GMC.
