Physicians in Gaza recount airstrikes on clinics, medical staff

After 11 days of intense fighting between Israel and Palestinian armed groups, primarily Hamas, a fragile ceasefire that took hold Thursday evening is still in place Friday afternoon. With a brief reprieve from hostilities, Palestinians immediately began repairs to the main in Gaza COVID-19 testing and vaccination site that were damaged by Israeli airstrikes on the ministry of health medical complex earlier in the week.

The ministry of health in Gaza announced today that it had reopened the main COVID-19 lab and could continue processing new coronavirus tests. Additionally, a small lab opened yesterday by the border with Egypt in order to run the COVID-19 test for exiting Palestinians.

Friday also marks the first day in over a week when goods could enter Gaza. In the first round of shipments, UNICEF imported 11,000 doses of the Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine, first aid kits, antibiotics, fire extinguishers and bags of blood and saline-glucose.
