At least seven people were killed in a fire at a hotel, which is being used as a Covid-19 facility, in Andhra Pradesh’s Vijayawada early today (09).

Around 22 patients are being treated in hospital, while the entire building has been evacuated.

The cause of the fire appears to be a short circuit.

Three days ago, eight people were killed in a fire in the intensive care unit of a private Covid-19 designated hospital in Gujarat’s Ahmedabad.
