Indian army medical team sent to earthquake-hit Turkey

New Delhi: In accordance with the government's resolve to aid Turkey, the Indian Army mobilised a field hospital on Tuesday to provide medical assistance to the earthquake victims there.

Officials reported that an 89-member medical team was sent from the Army Field Hospital in Agra. Critical care specialists make up the medical staff. In addition to others, the contingent consists of orthopaedic surgical teams, general surgical expert teams, and medical specialist teams.

The teams are equipped with X-ray machines, ventilators, an oxygen generation plant, cardiac monitors and associated equipment to establish a 30-bedded medical facility.

India on Monday decided to immediately despatch search and rescue teams of the National Disaster Response Force, medical teams and relief material to Turkey following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s instructions to offer all possible assistance to the country. The first aircraft with the relief materials was sent on Monday night.

The earthquake on Monday killed more than 4,000 people and flattened thousands of buildings in Turkey and neighbouring Syria. It was centred in Turkey’s southeastern province of Kahramanmaras and was felt as far away as Cairo.
