Description : A consignment of vital intensive care equipment and supplies were delivered to Gazan hospitals by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to get Gaza ready to cope with a wider outbreak of COVID-19. The donation included a ventilator, patient monitors, defibrillators, suction devices and pumps which are key tools for treating patients suffering from serious cases of COVID-19.
Even before the pandemic, Gaza was facing serious systemic issues impacting the quality of healthcare. There are only around 110 intensive care beds for adults of which most are already occupied. Just 93 ventilators are available against a population of 2 million. The ICRC has also donated shipments of hygiene materials and protective clothing such as surgical masks and goggles to the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) in both Gaza and Ramallah.
