Salhi said in a statement received by The Shafq News agency: The meeting of the presidency of the House of Representatives with the leaders of the political blocs about the fire of the isolation hospital for corona patients in Dhi Qar stressed the finding of a radical solution to the fires of hospitals and the construction of a new hospital in the province in record time.

Iraqi Parliament Speaker Mohammed al-Halbousi decided to transform tuesday's session of the council to "consider options" for the tragedy of Imam Hussein Teaching Hospital in Dhi Qar.
On the night of July 12, 2021, a huge fire at al-Hussein Hospital for the Treatment of Corona patients in Dhi Qar province killed dozens of patients.
