A video of people lying on beds outside a hospital is being shared on social media with a claim that it shows the condition of a hospital in the Old City – Hyderabad (India). But, FACTLY has found that the video is related to a fire accident at the emergency ward of Services Hospital in Lahore (Pakistan) on 13 June 2020. The video shows the evacuated patients after a fire broke out in the emergency ward. Multiple news articles regarding the incident can be read here and here. Also, similar visuals of the Services Hospital (Lahore) building as shown in the video can be found on Google Maps. So, the video has no connection to the Old City (Hyderabad).
