Gaza health system near collapse as number of virus cases surge

Due to the large number of coronavirus cases in the Gaza Strip, all the enclave’s hospital beds are currently occupied, today said Fathi Abu Warda, an advisor to Minister of Health Mai Alkaila.

He warned that a surge in the number of positive cases can cause a serious deterioration to Gaza’s health sector.

Abu Warda told Voice of Palestine radio that 20 percent of all active coronavirus cases in the Gaza Strip are in serious condition with the majority suffer from pneumonia.
