As heavy rain lashed parts of Bihar following Cyclone Yaas, several hospitals and health centres suffered severe water logging issues.
One such visual from a waterlogged hospital in Katihar is now making rounds on the internet, prompting varied reactions from netizens.
Originally shared by news agency ANI on Twitter, the video shows wards and corridors of Sadar hospital flooded. At one point in the video, a hospital staff can be seen riding a motorcycle inside the waterlogged corridors, presumably to reach a patient.

Unfortunately, Sadar hospital in Katihar is not the only hospital to be affected by the heavy rainfall. Taking to Twitter, Former Member of Parliament Pappu Yadav also posted images of Bihar’s oldest hospital, Darbhanga Medical College & Hospital (DMCH), completely inundated, calling it a ‘floating hospital’.
