Israel’s Sheba Medical Centre has established a civilian field hospital in Ukraine, accommodating 150 patients per day.
The Head of the Paediatric Infectious Disease Unit Dr Galia Barkai says the centre has “seen about 1,400 patients so far in nine days”.
“They really need a lot of extra care, and we’ve brought to them the best of Israeli doctors. We’ve brought to them high-level medicine from Israel,” she told Sky News host Rita Panahi.
She said there are many Ukrainian citizens “fleeing from trauma who need psychological and psychiatric help”.
“May of them have been really, very weak, and their chronic diseases have gotten worse. They’re down, they’re worried about what will happen with their country,” Dr Barkai said.
