The death toll from a deadly fire at a hospital in Miryang, South Gyeongsang Province, last month has grown to 46 after three more deaths this week.
The number of victims may continue to rise as two of the eight seriously injured are in critical condition.
The hospital had mostly elderly patients, so some deaths could not be directly linked to the fire. Government authorities will conduct autopsies as necessary to figure out the causes of death, which are related to the scope of compensation and insurance payouts.
