In the city of Izyum, Kharkiv region, there was a disaster with the morgue. There is no one to work there and the premises are not equipped to store bodies.
About it on the air Public radio journalist Kateryna Lykhoglyad said.
“The local volunteers told me that there was a disaster in the morgue. When we arrived, we saw this picture: an old building, simply open, anyone can enter, and everything is littered with bodies. Bodies lie on the floor, on gurneys. The smell is such that even without knowing that there is a morgue, it is not easy to guess about it. In order to go there, we put on masks and pulled sweaters over our heads. They could not last more than a minute in the morgue. The morgue is not equipped. There is no way to store the bodies,” says Kateryna Lykhoglyad.
According to the journalist, the fact that there is trouble with the morgue in Izyum was also confirmed by the doctors of the local hospital:
“And the problem is not only in terms of premises and equipment, but also in the fact that there are no people who would work there. One person was killed by the occupiers. Another employee – a pathologist – does not appear at the morgue, the reasons are unknown to me. Only a laboratory assistant works in the morgue. She only takes care of paper work. According to the doctors, the hospital turned to the region for help in this. That is, the region is aware. But the situation is like this at the moment.”
According to Maksym Haustov, director of the HOVA Health Department, with the help of the Red Cross, a refrigerator for the transportation of bodies was provided, and the personnel problem is being solved. The military and the National Police are also involved in solving this issue.
