According to the instruction of Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev, medical services are being continued to the people affected by the earthquake in the mobile field hospital of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, which was sent to the brotherly country to support the elimination of the consequences of a strong earthquake in the Republic of Turkiye.

In total, over the past days, 2639 people including 562 children were provided with high-level medical care.

It should be noted that taking into account the gradual restoration of local medical infrastructure in the earthquake area, one of the mobile field hospitals of the Ministry of emergency situations in Kahramanmaras was brought to Baku today, and the other hospital continues its activities without interruption.
