8 out of 11 fire extinguishers in United Hospital’s isolation room were date-expired: Atiqul

Eight out of 11 fire extinguishers at the isolation unit of United Hospital were date-expired, Dhaka North City Corporation Mayor Atiqul Islam said.

He came up with the allegation after visiting the hospital where five people, including three corona patients, died in a fire on Wednesday night.

“Eight fire extinguishers expired a month ago and only three were upto date”, the mayor said.

He said necessary action will be taken if investigation shows that the hospital was negligent.
