Hospital in Mexico flooded: At least 16 dead

After heavy rains, three rivers in Mexico burst their banks. A hospital with numerous Covid patients is also affected by the flood.

Tula – At least 16 patients died in a flooded hospital in Mexico.

In the clinic in the central Mexican city of Tula, Covid 19 patients could not be supplied with oxygen due to a power failure as a result of the flooding, said the head of the State Institute for Social Security (IMSS), Zoé Robledo, in a video that the government announced posted on Twitter on Tuesday.

Three rivers burst their banks on Monday evening (local time) after heavy rain. Floods also occurred in the city of Ecatepec, a few kilometers from Mexico’s capital.

According to Robledo, 56 patients had been treated in the hospital in Tula, which is in the state of Hidalgo, most of them for Covid-19 diseases. The survivors would be brought to safety. According to media reports, newborns also had to be evacuated in incubators. Hundreds of people had to seek shelter in emergency shelters at dawn. The Mexican government declared a state of emergency in 27 communities in Hidalgo and sent soldiers to help in the affected areas. dpa
