A hospital staff member checks newly arrived oxygen cylinders at Baba Raghav Das Medical College Hospital in Gorakhpur, in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, on Saturday.
Parents of at least 35 children who have died in the state-run hospital over the past three days have alleged that the fatalities were due to the lack of a sufficient oxygen supply in the children’s ward. District Magistrate Rajiv Rautela said Saturday that the deaths of the children being treated for different ailments were due to natural causes. He denied that an insufficient oxygen supply led to their deaths.
Parents said that the oxygen supply to the ward ran out Thursday night and that patients’ families were given self-inflating bags to help the children breathe.
“That’s the time when the death of the children peaked,” said Mritunjaya Singh, whose 7-month-old son was admitted to the hospital and was not among the dead.
The Uttar Pradesh government has ordered an investigation.

Residents of Kibera in Nairobi, Kenya, roll a burning tire as they use them to block a street to protest in support of Kenyan opposition leader and presidential candidate Raila Odinga on Wednesday.
Odinga, threw early results of the country’s presidential election into doubt Wednesday, claiming that the electoral commission’s servers had been hacked to award the incumbent, Uhuru Kenyatta, a significant lead.
Given Kenya’s history of postelection violence, Odinga’s comments renewed fears of deadly unrest, although he asked supporters to remain calm. Rights organizations have also warned of discrepancies in the preliminary results.
Preliminary results showed that with more than 90 percent of votes counted, Kenyatta was 10 percentage points ahead of Odinga, with a share of votes well ahead of the 50 percent needed to avoid a runoff.
Odinga said hacking had taken place between 12:37 p.m. and 4 p.m. on the day of the election. The hackers, he said, had used the credentials of a recently slain election official to instruct the servers of the electoral commission to doctor results from polling stations.
