As many as 221 new patients were admitted to the hospital from October 2 to 3, as per an official release.
Currently, 823 patients are being treated at the hospital, it said.
HC takes suo motu cognizance
The Bombay high court on Wednesday took suo motu cognizance of the deaths at two state-run hospitals in Nanded and Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar cities and noted that the reasons given by doctors citing the shortage of beds, staff, and essential medicines cannot be accepted.
The HC also sought details from the Maharashtra government.
A division bench of Chief Justice DK Upadhyaya and Justice Arif Doctor asked advocate general Birendra Saraf, appearing for the state government, to submit to the bench the details about the state’s budgetary allocation for health on Friday.
