Alsahwa Net- The Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said on Monday that the bed capacity for treatment of Covid-19 patients in Aden was exhausted due to the sharp increase of suspected and confirmed Covid-19 cases in the city.
“After discussions with the Ministry of Public Health and Population and the Al-Gamhouria Hospital Management, the MSF reached an agreement with both entities to provide immediate support to the Al-Gamhouria COVID-19 Treatment Centre in Aden,” the MSF said.
It said that an MSF emergency team has been already deployed on the ground and it started the provision of the medical and logistic support at the Al-Gamhouria COVID-19 Treatment Centre.
The health system in Aden has nearly collapsed following seizure of the city by the separatist Southern Transitional Council (STC) early last August.
