According to Pavel Shpak, the field hospital that was set up by Belarusian doctors in Syria's Aleppo provides inpatient care to victims of the earthquake. “We provide medical assistance to an average of 200 patients daily. Most of them are people suffering from pneumonia. This is understandable, because many Syrians were left homeless and had to spend the night on the street. Some even had frostbite,” said Pavel Shpak.

According to the Belarusian military medic, local residents having chronic diseases also apply to the field hospital. These diseases include diabetes, bronchial asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and others.
