Fire Kills 8 COVID19 Patients
At least eight COVID19 patients died in a fire that broke out in an intensive care unit at a hospital in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad early this morning.
It took fire fighters half an hour to contain the blaze at Shrey Hospital in Ahmadabad and thirty-five patients have been moved to other hospitals.
An investigation has been launched to find out the cause of the fire.
Police stopped angry relatives from entering the hospital after the tragedy which, according to emergency services, was caused by a medical staff member’s personal protective equipment (PPE) catching fire.
