New Delhi:
A large number of devotees heading to Chardham this year are dying of heart attack. So far this year, 21 worshippers have died of heart attacks, according to reports. The death of devotees during the Chardham Yatra has been reported to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO).

The Prime Minister's Office has requested information on 21 deaths that occurred during the Chardham Yatra up to late Tuesday evening. It's worth mentioning that the Chardham Yatra only began after a two-year pause caused by the Corona pandemic. As a result, the Chardham Yatra is seeing an increase in devotees this year, with people of all ages participating. 

Every day three devotees are dying

21 people have died in the first seven days of the journey. All of them were said to have died of a heart attack, according to reports. There have been 14 deaths as a result of pilgrims visiting Gangotri and Yamunotri Dhams. As a result, concerns about health facilities along the trip route have been raised.

Health department sent report to PMO

The Health Department responded to the Prime Minister's Office late Tuesday evening after receiving the information from the PMO. Along with the causes of deaths, this document contains information on the government's health-care arrangements along the Chardham Yatra routes. The Health Department also stated in its response that health advisory has been issued for the pilgrims coming to Chardham.

Lack of oxygen is becoming the cause of death

In fact, the Prime Minister's Office wrote a letter to the state administration on Tuesday, directing it to report on the rising number of deaths as soon as possible. The report was delivered to the Prime Minister's Office by Health Secretary Radhika Jha. The health service has ascribed the passengers' deaths to a lack of oxygen along the route, according to sources.

Along with this, information regarding government-supported health services along the trip route has been provided. According to reports, a First Medical Response Team, including an Advance Response Team, has been established at several locations for the convenience of passengers, and a Cardiac Ambulance has also been dispatched in Uttarkashi.
