Deadly fire Broke out on Hospital in Baghdad: Around 23 Corona patients burnt alive.
Those patients were admitted to the hospital to save their lives. But 23 patients with the Coronavirus were burned alive in that refuge hospital. At least 50 people fight to the death. The Baghdad administration fears that the death toll could rise further. The bomber struck shortly after noon at the Kovid Hospital oxygen supply unit. The hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is on fire because of this.
The number of Corona cases in Iraq has already exceeded one million. In this war-torn country, the health infrastructure has completely collapsed. Investment in this sector is at an all-time low. As a result, the government has practically failed to address the epidemic in the usual way. The number of Kovid infections is increasing day by day in Sethan. According to local sources, at least 120 Kovid patients were being treated in the ICU of Ibn al-Khatib Hospital in the capital Baghdad. There were also their relatives at that time. The fire broke out in the ICU at midnight and covered the entire ward in black smoke.
At least 23 people died while fighting toxic gases before firefighters arrived. It was possible to get 50 people out by the neighborhood. The relatives of the patient jumped out of the building and tried to escape. Many were injured. After a long effort, the firefighters brought the fire under control.
Meanwhile, the government blames the negligence of the workers behind the incident. Upon hearing the news, the Iraqi Health Ministry summoned Baghdad Governor Mohammed Jaber. A commission of inquiry has been ordered to find out the cause of the incident. The Health Ministry has also severely punished the culprits. According to sources, Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Qadimi sacked Health Minister Hassan al-Tamimi in the fire’s wake.
