At least 13 Covid-19 patients were killed after a hospital in a Mumbai suburb caught fire Friday, the latest in a series of accidents at India's crowded health facilities amid a dangerous surge in coronavirus cases that has overwhelmed its weak healthcare system.

The fire broke out around 3 am in the intensive care unit (ICU) of the private Vijay Vallabh Hospital, located in the coastal town of Virar, near the financial capital of India, in the western state of Maharashtra. EFE
