Gaza health Ministry Renews Pharmaceutical Crisis Warning
Many heart patients' lives threatened by Gaza pharmaceutical crisis
GAZA, (PIC)-- The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza has warned that the health situation in the besieged Gaza Strip is getting worse as hundreds of medicines and medical consumables are gradually running out in hospitals and medical centers.
Spokesman for the Health Ministry Ashraf Al-Qudra stated that there are serious indicators that the pharmaceutical and health crisis in Gaza will deteriorate very badly if this situation persists.
The spokesman warned that the severity of the health crisis may turn very ugly to the extent that it would be hard to control it by the ongoing international efforts to contain it.
He said that as the month of June ended, the balance of medical supplies reached a very disturbing level when 206 essential medicines and 266 medical consumables completely ran out in hospitals, test labs, primary care centers and blood banks.
