How to get a tattoo without going to the tattoo parlour
The world’s most popular tattoo parlor has been closed for more than two months due to a series of earthquakes and power cuts.
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced on Monday that the country’s second largest hospital, Chantal-de-Bellevue, has been shut down and the hospital’s emergency room has been completely evacuated due to “the high risk of a pandemic outbreak”.
The earthquake and power blackout that hit the country in November has caused the hospital to shut down for the last two months, according to the WHO.
“The earthquake has caused widespread damage to our hospitals,” Chantel de Bellevue hospital’s head of emergency medicine, Pauline de Rocha, told AFP news agency.
“We are doing everything we can to save our lives.”
The hospital’s two operating theatres, the one that houses surgery, and a clinic are closed, as are the main reception area.
Patients are not allowed to leave the hospital without being screened by an inspector.
The earthquake that struck the country on November 7 has damaged the hospital, and it has shut down two other hospitals, including one in the capital, Belgrade.
“It has affected us in terms of staff,” said Dr Radek Valko, chief of surgery at Chantemel de Rovira, the hospital with the two main operating theatre.
“There are staff who are very afraid to leave their house or to go to work because they are afraid of what is happening.”
In addition to Chantil de Belevue, the WHO said the WHO is investigating the cause of the earthquake, and the WHO urged the public to be on the lookout for signs of a major pandemic.
“We urge people to be vigilant for signs and symptoms of a potential pandemic, and to avoid becoming a victim of a severe outbreak, as there are many people who have died as a result of this,” said WHO spokeswoman Liliya Rasil.
“People are very worried about the safety of their loved ones, and if they do not have medical assistance, they may not be able to get care at all,” she added.
In a statement, the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) said it was “deeply saddened” by the deaths of two children who died in Chanten de Belviue after being struck by a falling tree.
The IFRC said in a statement that the bodies of two girls aged five and six were found inside a collapsed tree outside the Chantale hospital, which was evacuated on November 13 due to the earthquake.
“All of our deepest condolences go out to the families of the two children, and our hearts go out also to their families,” the IFRC statement read.
“For those in need of urgent medical attention and urgent care, we urge people not to delay seeking it.”
