Deadly earthquake exacerbates suffering of displaced Syrians
The world mourns the death of more than 3500 people killed in the earthquake that hit northwestern the town of Syria, which is held by rebels Darkush. Additionally, we want to appreciate the extraordinary efforts made by medical professionals in the field. Doctor Osama Salalom of the Syrian American Medical Society is working at Bab Al Hawa Hospital. In the past, Bab Al Haawa Hospital has seen over 400 deaths , and is reporting more than fifty more. The crisis of humanitarian aid in Syria is in full swing for years, and the sheer number of casualties and deaths that result from this natural catastrophe only adds to the suffering of people of this region. The most admired of us is Dr. Sallom, and all the personnel in the field of healthcare who sought to help the victims of this tragic event.
1. How many casualties and deaths were reported in the Bab Al Hawa Hospital in Darkush?
Tragic reminders of the suffering that the millions of displaced individuals who’ve lived in the area for many years like the recent news about the devastating earthquake in the city of Darkush (northwest part of Syria) was the outcome from the devastation of the catastrophe. As per reports, the earthquake, measuring 5.1 on Richter’s scale, was a major cause of destruction and damages. There was a lot of destruction and damage to the Bab Al Hawa Hospital, situated in Darkush and reported to be the one to suffer the brunt of the destruction. There were fatalities and casualties reported at the facility. Reports indicate that there 29 casualties in the Bab Al Hawa Hospital, with at least eight of them being fatal.
2. The magnitude of the magnitude of the earthquake that destroyed all of the area?
The recent earthquake that struck the area of Syria was one of a significant magnitude with a magnitude of 6.2 on the Richter scale. This earthquake caused extensive destruction and has exacerbated the existing conditions of living for the people who are displaced because of the conflict. A situation like this has the capacity to result in catastrophic destruction, and the initial reports from the region indicate that it’s done exactly that. When more information about the earthquake become accessible, it’s likely that we’ll know the extent of the damage over the next hours and even weeks. At present, there is an urgent need for humanitarian aid and assistance throughout the region, while those in need are forced to deal with the aftermath of a massive earthquake.
3. What will happen to human crisis that is raging in Syria in the event of a devastating earthquake?
The recent deadly earthquake in Syria is only adding to the already dire crises in the humanitarian field in the region. Syrians have suffered from war, displacement, and hardship for years. Further suffering was brought on through the earthquake that hit at 5.7 on the Richter scale. Additionally, it caused huge damage to the region’s northwest in the northwest, and resulted in major destruction. In the aftermath of the quake, the Turkish Red Crescent and other aid organisations have set up teams of volunteers to provide aid and assistance to the affected regions. However, the sheer scale of the displacements and shortage of resources to provide assistance to people affected means that the humanitarian crisis in Syria will likely get worsened due to the natural disaster.
4. What number of patients has Dr Osama Salama of SAMS, the Syria American Medical Society(SAMS) taken care of after the tsunami?
Dr Osama Sallom, a member of The Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS), has seen quite a large number of patients after the earthquake. Since the start of the Syrian conflict in 2011, the amount of Syrians forced to flee has been increasing steadily. The earthquake that struck the country, however is causing more problems in that many Syrians are forced to move out of their homes. In the aftermath of the earthquake Dr Sallom’s patients list has increased exponentially. According to reports, Dr Sallom has seen over 1000 patients since the earthquake. The number of patients is predicted to grow because the conditions continue to get worse.
The extent of destruction that has occurred in Syria in the wake of the devastating earthquake has left a lot of people devastated. It’s evident that many are having difficulty obtaining the medication, medical and electric services that they need. It’s inspiring watching the courage and perseverance of health professionals, who do their best under the most dangerous and uncertain conditions. We should do all that we can to support those in need, and ensure their stories are heard by those who are in charge in order for meaningful changes to be achieved and lives be saved.
