Israel Hamas War: Shifa, the biggest hospital in the Gaza Strip, has received medical assistance from a team headed by the World Health Organization (WHO). Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director general of WHO, provided this information on Sunday. WHO also acknowledged that Israeli bombing had completely destroyed the emergency department of Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza. There is an urgent need for this assistance in this circumstance.
The World Health Organization (WHO) made this announcement as a group of UN specialists visited Al-Shifa Hospital today in order to provide basic medical supplies and identify urgent health needs. Al-Shifa is one of the biggest hospitals in the Gaza Strip, which is noteworthy.
The hospital’s grounds and building were being used as a shelter by thousands of displaced people, according to a statement from WHO. There is an acute scarcity of food and drinking water. There is not enough staff to give patients round-the-clock care, and there is no blood available for transfusions. There are hundreds of injured patients in the emergency room, and more are coming in every minute. It’s a chaotic place. According to him, only eight of the 36 hospitals in the Gaza Strip are currently operating partially.
According to the WHO, patients in need of surgery are being moved to Al-Ahli Arab Hospital. In contrast, operating rooms cannot function because they are depleted of supplies and oxygen. WHO added that this hospital currently needs to be strengthened in a different way. In order to restore basic services, WHO said that it would reinforce Al-Shifa in the upcoming weeks.
