Egypt Denied an Oxygen Failure Killed Covid Patients. We Found That It Did.
January 18, 2021
(New York Times) – Witnesses, including medical staff and relatives of patients, said in interviews that the oxygen pressure had fallen to precipitously low levels. At least three patients, they said, and possibly a fourth, had died of oxygen deprivation. A close analysis of the video by doctors in Egypt and the United States confirmed that the chaotic scene in the I.C.U. indicated an interruption in the oxygen supply. The fatal oxygen shortage was the end result of a cascade of problems at the hospital, our investigation found.
