At least three Beirut hospitals destroyed, two damaged


Dr Mirna Doumit, president of the Order of Nurses in Beirut, said three of the city's hospitals had been destroyed in the explosion in the port area. "So we had to evacuate patients who were in those hospitals to others. In addition, we have two other hospitals that were partially destroyed. So it was a catastrophe and a big hit to the healthcare system, which was already bleeding," she told Al Jazeera from the Lebanese capital. "We lost three nurses working in the hospitals. I don't find words to describe what happened. It's like we are in a horror film." Dr Mirna Doumit joined us earlier from Beirut, Lebanon, to discuss the latest updates. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/ #Lebanon #BeirutExplosion #BeirutBlast
