WHO concerned about some areas of Turkey after earthquake

The World Health Organization (WHO) expressed alarm on Monday about locations in Turkey from which there had been no news, following an overnight devastating earthquake.

“National authorities will be focussing on search and rescue at the moment,” a WHO spokesperson told Reuters in a statement. “Then we will expect an increased need for trauma care to treat the injured and to support the entire health system in affected areas.”
