04 people have died in a powerful fire at a hospital in Romania. It is reported that all the four victims were COVID patients who were receiving treatment at the hospital.
The fire broke out at a hospital treating COVID patients in the Romanian capital, Bucharest.
The blaze, which broke out in the afternoon, had spread to one floor of the hospital. The worst damage was to four rooms where patients were staying. As the fire spread, the emergency services took action to depopulate the relevant floor. More than a hundred people were evacuated.
Authorities said 44 of them were receiving oxygen treatment and were in critical condition and had been referred to other hospitals in Bucharest.
This is the second deadly fire in hospitals in EU countries in three months.
