The 110-year old Osmania General Hospital, which had been converted into a Covid-19 facility inundated with rain water, causing severe hardship to hundreds of patients. The Telangana Government hospital has been in need of repairs for the past many years. Rain and sewage water overflowed inside Hyderabad’s Osmania Hospital’s patient block, during a spell of heavy shower.
Videos and pictures that went viral on social media revealed that corridors and wards were inundated and beds were virtually floating in the water. The rain water was gushing out of the hospital corridors as if there was a breach in the canal and the entire premises were completely waterlogged.
