A World Health Organization official says less than a third of Gaza’s hospitals remain functional, and those only partially so, Reuters news agency reports.

According to Reuters, the WHO’s Richard Peeperkorn told a UN press briefing: “In just 66 days the health system has gone from 36 functional hospitals to 11 partially functional hospitals – one in the north and 10 in the south.

“We cannot afford to lose any health care facilities or hospitals.

“We hope, we plea that this will not happen.”
