Apart from Turkey, the situation in earthquake-ravaged Syria is not good. Relief has been sent to rebel-held areas there. The first aid ship arrived in northwestern Syria on Thursday. According to an official working at the Bab al-Hawa border, this relief will help save many lives. On the other hand World Health Organization (World Health Organization) or WHO head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced his visit to Syria. A team of WHO doctors has already been sent to earthquake-ravaged Syria. In addition, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres appealed for the opening of new cross-border humanitarian aid routes between Turkey and Syria. He proposed to discuss the matter in the United Nations Security Council.
He made significant comments in this context Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He admitted that the government’s handling of the disaster was flawed. Before this, Turkey suffered a terrible earthquake in 1939. 33 thousand people died in the earthquake that year. Experts claim, since 1939, the death toll may be more. According to them, the average survival rate in the first 24 hours of any natural disaster is 74%. After 72 hours it was reduced to 22%. On the fifth day, it stands at only 6%.
Dead bodies are being piled up in earthquake-ravaged Turkey, leaving hospitals on carports. In this situation China and America Help has been promised. India has also sent humanitarian aid and rescue teams to Turkey.
