The Ministry of Health in Gaza Strip said that the number of surgeries that have been delayed in Gaza has reached 500 on Wednesday after hygiene services have stopped in all Gaza hospitals.
In a press statement, spokesman for the Ministry of Health in Gaza Strip, Ashraf Qedra, said that the reason for the suspension of hygiene services was the lack of a safe healthy environment for the fourth day in a row in health facilities.
He added that dental services and laboratory examinations had declined due to the discontinuation of hygiene services in primary care centres.
It is worth noting that the companies responsible for hygiene stopped working in Gaza Strip hospitals because they have not been paid for the fifth month in a row now.
