A person died while 25 others are in a critical condition after a single syringe was used for all the patients at a district hospital in Madhya Pradesh’s Datia district.

Speaking to ANI, Civil Surgeon of the hospital, Dr PK Sharma said that the incident took place due to the negligence of the nurses.

“A single syringe was used for all the patients. The incident took place because of the negligence of the nurses as they were using normal water instead of distilled water,” Sharma said.
