Ukraine health centres have been attacked, WHO chief says

The World Health Organization verified “many” attacks on health-care facilities in Ukraine on Sunday, and said it is investigating others.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated in a Twitter message that the attacks resulted in several deaths and injuries.

“Attacks on healthcare facilities or personnel are a violation of medical neutrality and international humanitarian law,” he stated.

Tedros made no mention of Russia, which invaded Ukraine on February 24.
