Nine COVID-19 patients died on Monday after an oxygen pipe burst at a Russian hospital, reported the Russian Ria Novosti news agency.

It happened at the Clinical Emergency Hospital of Vladikavkaz, the capital city of the southwestern North Ossetia region, the agency quoted the health ministry as saying.

“There was an accident at the oxygen station, interruptions in oxygen supply, in fact, there was a rupture of the oxygen pipe from the tank, which is underground, and the supply was stopped,” Sergei Menyailo, acting head of North Ossetia, is quoted as saying by the agency.

The oxygen system failure became known at 18:00 local time and oxygen was provided to the 71 patients in the intensive care unit from reserve cylinders.

Menyailo said that hospitals in the regions will provide oxygen to the facility in Vladikavkaz from tomorrow.
