MOSCOW, July 9 (Itar-Tass) - More than a thousand athletes and spectators have asked for medical assistance at Universiade- 2013 over the past two days, the press service of the Russian Health Ministry said on Tuesday.

Around 1,500 medical workers had been strained at special courses to give medical support at the Universiada. Medical assistance is also provided by volunteers most of whom are students of medical colleges.
Ambulance and FMBA teams for toxicological and radiation control are on standby at every sports facility and in the Universiade Village. Three medical teams have been patrolling the area of the Universiade facilities round the clock from a helicopter.
An emergency reanimation boat team was set up to render urgent assistance in water areas with the support of the Ministry for Emergency Situations. Six medical organizations of Kazan were employed to render medical assistance under hospital conditions.
