Dimapur, May 16 (EMN):
Authority at District Hospital Dimapur (DHD) has denied a video clip of patients lying on the floor of a hospital veranda with oxygen-fitted cylinders, which went viral on social media on Sunday. It claimed that the video was from DHD.

When Eastern Mirror contacted an official to confirm about the video clip, it was informed that the video circulating on social media was not of DHD but ‘somewhere in northeast state’. The source from DHD also stated the condition at DHD was “so far good with empty beds and oxygen available”.

However, the only concern, the source informed, was the impending acute shortage of manpower, while pointing out that the state was not doing well in managing the situation right from the start.
