More than 500 children hospitalized in Ağrı in Turkey’s east
Hospital corridors in the Women’s Labor and Children’s Hospital in Ağrı have been packed over the past couple of days due to an epidemic break out that spread in the northeastern province.
An average of hundreds of people daily, mostly children, have been hospitalized due to the epidemic—especially as overall weather conditions are above seasonal norms.
Most of the children who had been fainting had been submitted to the hospital in the evening. Cries could be heard in the children’s wing of the hospital where it became hard to walk due to the crowd.
Queues had been seen in front of pharmacies on duty. Children who have suffered from seizures have been transferred to the central province of Erzurum for treatment.
