Dr. Zaher Sahloul, president of US-based MedGlobal, says his team in Gaza is trying to get health care supplies to those who desperately need them.

"A US hospital, in Chicago, has more ICU beds and more ventilators than the entire Gaza Strip," Sahloul said on Sunday.

«They are piling up the corpses outside the hospital», “They are worried about the contamination of water sources with decomposing bodies. And I've seen videos of emergency rooms full of patients lying on the floor. They were operating on patients without anesthesia in some major hospitals and others.”

Hospitals in northern Gaza are overwhelmed by casualties and lack of supplies. There is fear of running out of fuel to power hospitals and of shortages of drinking water and food.

“Plus, they are running out of pain medication and intravenous fluid,” Sahloul said. “They are using one gauze instead of 10 gauze pads to stop the bleeding… they are running out of space. So they are doing surgeries on the ground. Even the morgue is running out of space because there are so many corpses.”

Over the weekend, the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza was reopened, allowing a small fleet of medical trucks to reach the area with supplies.
