The health situation in Gaza is really bad, said the head of WHO, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. He wrote on social media that the bombing in Gaza is scary. A hospital they visited was too full, with 1,000 patients instead of its normal capacity.


Patients are being treated on the floor and are in a lot of pain. He said these conditions are unimaginable for good healthcare. He's really worried about what's happening and keeps asking for a ceasefire. However, the situation is not getting any better, on the contrary.

The situation is getting worse every day. The number of victims is growing rapidly. Looking at the pictures from Palestine, we cannot help but feel the fear and pain that reigns among the inhabitants there.

Health system: The already fragile health system is buckling

The health system is in chaos and a true collapse.

In addition to the fact that doctors have to help the wounded, everyday diseases and their treatment become a problem, considering the current events. People who are in need cannot be treated. “The already fragile health system is buckling under the load of injuries, outbreaks, malnutrition and untreated cases of diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular, kidney and respiratory disease,” Tedros said, as quoted by healthpolicy-watch.news!

“In addition to measles, rubella, malaria and dengue, outbreaks of cholera have been declared in three states”. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus shared the numbers, and people are scared by them and the chaos happening now.

There's a worry that this number will keep going up every day.Hour after hour, we witness alarming images from Palestine. Many are hoping for a ceasefire, but optimism is fading.
“Since Hamas’s horrific attacks on Israel, on 7 October, more than 10,000 people have been killed.

including more than 8500 in Gaza, and 1400 in Israel. In both Israel and Gaza, Some 70% of those killed are women and children. More than 21,000 people are injured and more than 1.4 million people in Gaza have been displaced. "
