Mumbai: In a tragic incident, at least 13 COVID patients succumbed after a fire broke out at Vijay Vallabh Covid Care hospital in Virar West on the outskirts of Mumbai on Friday morning.

The fire broke out at 3.15 am inside the ICU ward of the hospital, where 17 patients were lodged. A short circuit is believed to be the cause of the fire.

After two hours the Fire Brigade managed to control the blaze with three fire tenders. The situation is said to be under control now but “13 people have died after a fire broke out in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) around 3am today. 21 patients have been shifted to another hospital, some are also in critical condition,” said Vijay Vallabh COVID care hospital official Dr Dilip Shah.

“The fire at a COVID-19 hospital in Virar is tragic. Condolences to those who lost their loved ones. May the injured recover soon,” tweeted PM Narendra Modi.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh also expressed grief over the incident. He said, “Saddened by the loss of lives due to tragic fire at a Hospital in Palghar, Maharashtra. My condolences to the bereaved families. Praying for the speedy recovery of the injured.”
