Seven more people suffered severe burns, including the department’s senior doctor.

A total of 16 Covid-19 patients connected to pulmonary ventilators were treated in the unit.

The fire is, of course, caused by an accident, possibly a short circuit in electricity.

The prosecutor’s office is expected to launch an investigation.

Pyatra Njamca is located in Romania in the northeast about 300 kilometers north of the capital Bucharest.

In a country with a population of 19.4 million, 8,684 people have died from Covid-19 since the beginning of the epidemic, and 343,725 cases of coronavirus infection have been reported, according to estimates by the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control.
