At least 50 people have died and dozens injured after a fire razed a COVID-19 ward in the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah. It is the second blaze to sweep through a coronavirus unit in three months and has angered many of the city's residents. The fire broke out at the Al-Hussein hospital late on Monday as civil defence teams fought to control it.
