Help Lebanon: Russia's emergencies ministry deploys field hospital in Beirut

Beirut, LebanonRussia's Ministry of Emergencies deployed a field hospital in the blast-stricken capital of Lebanon on Thursday. The field hospital will treat people with minor injuries from 08:00 in the morning until 20:00 in the evening but will admit anyone needing emergency treatment around the clock, a representative of the ministry, Alexei Skorobulatov, said.

A plane containing the field hospital and medical personnel arrived in Beirut late on Wednesday. Russia's emergencies ministry said earlier it was sending five planes with aid to Lebanon. Another plane with equipment for identifying the novel coronavirus infection left the Russian city of Saratov for Beirut on Thursday. Russia also said all medical staff travelling to Lebanon would be equipped with personal protective gear in light of the pandemic.

Along with this, Jordan, Egypt send food and medical supplies to Lebanon. Jordan sent a military field hospital that encompassed 48 beds, 10 ICU beds, two operating rooms, and an X-ray lab, along with 160 staff members. 
Drone footage showed destruction at Beirut port after Tuesday’s  explosion killed 145 people. Dozens are still missing after the blast that injured 5,000 people and left up to a quarter of a million without homes fit to live in, hammering a nation already reeling from economic meltdown and a surge in coronavirus cases. A security source said the death toll had reached 145, and officials said the figure was likely to rise.
