Critically-ill patients in Nagorno Karabakh hospital in life-threatening situation amid Azerbaijani blockade
STEPANAKERT, DECEMBER 13, ARMENPRESS. The lives of several critically-ill patients at the Stepanakert Republican Medical Center in Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh) are in danger as their planned medevac to Armenia has become impossible because Azerbaijan has blocked the Lachin Corridor, the only road linking Nagorno Karabakh with Armenia and the rest of the world.
“A group of patients are in serious and critical condition,” the hospital’s director Mher Musayelyan told ARMENPRESS. “They must continue treatment and examinations in Yerevan. As a result of the blockade their transportation to Armenia’s hospitals has become impossible. Their lives are in danger,” Musayelyan said. One of the critically-ill patients is breathing through a ventilator, while the other is scheduled for an urgent open-heart surgery in Yerevan
