Patients have been evacuated from Vijay Vallabh Hospital after the fire was put out on Friday morning.

At least 13 patients have died after a fire broke out in the intensive care unit of an Indian hospital treating coronavirus patients.

The Indian authorities said they managed to extinguish the fire, which broke out in the early hours of Friday morning, and transported four survivors to nearby hospitals.

The accident comes amid a second deadly wave of infections in India.

Hospitals were overwhelmed by the sudden rise in the number of patients, causing severe shortages of oxygen, intensive care beds and ventilators.
