ROMANIA-HOSPITAL-FIRE

Firemen gather in the courtyard of the Matei Bals infectious diseases hospital's burned pavilion in Bucharest on January 29, 2021 where at least four people died after a fire broke out in Romania's main hospital treating Covid-19 patients. - Three patients were found dead at the Matei Bals hospital in Bucarest and a fourth died despite attempts at resuscitation, state secretary of the Ministry of Interior told reporters. The fire reportedly broke out on the ground floor around 5:00am (0300 GMT), said the head of the inspectorate for emergency situations. Four wards were affected and 102 people had been evacuated and transferred to other hospitals, he added. Romania is still reeling from a similar tragedy in November, when ten people suffering from Covid-19 died in a fire in an intensive care unit of a hospital in the northeastern town of Piatra Neamt.
